Can we get retired packages out of the active Bugzilla component
If they are completely retired, yeah, this might be possible.
I just created a bug for a retired package and had to fix it...
Bugzilla allows components to be disabled rather than deleted in case
the bugs need to be searched for or a package comes out of retirement.
Unfortunately the only way I see to automate this process is the REST
API in 5.0.
We use python-bugzilla to interface with bugzilla.
Specfically this script:
So, we would need to enhance this script to handle the case of a
package being retired in all branches in a product. Note that if they
have any active branches we can't do this as at least the change I see
via the interface is per component.
Anyhow, if someone can see how to do this/provide patches sounds like a
great idea. If we have to wait for 5.0, that would be good to know too.
