Description Stuart D Gathman 2012-12-04 18:21:02 EST
Description of problem:
When abrt finds a bug already reported, but the existing report is closed with WONT_FIX because of EOL, it will not open a new report.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a core dump reported for an EOL version, e.g. bug#720467
2. abrt won't open a bug for current fedora version
Actual results:
No way to reopen bug for new Fedora version.

Expected results:
Some way to reopen bug for new Fedora version using abrt - maybe as simple as submitting collected info to a manually entered bug#.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Stuart D Gathman 2012-12-05 10:57:59 EST
If creating a new bug will be automatic, abrt only needs to know whether its own Fedora version is EOL.  That can be a static configuration supplied as part of the RPM.  Then, the logic should be: if the existing bug is for an EOL Fedora, and Fedora of abrt is not EOL, then ignore the existing bug.
Comment 2 Stuart D Gathman 2012-12-05 11:03:59 EST
Come to think of it, some RPM already has the EOL configured, because I get a notifier from Gnome after EOL advising me to upgrade.
