If you are going to change rawhide bugs to Fx bugs at Fx release time, 
why even have rawhide as a bugzilla version at all?  Why not report 
bugs in what will become F10 under version F10 now?  You can tell from 
the reported date that it was during the development cycle of F10.

If people can't be bothered to update a bug once every 6 months if it 
still applies to the latest version, then it should be closed WONTFIX.  
Leaving it as "rawhide" forever does no one any good.

So I propose to get rid of "rawhide" as a Bugzilla version, and create 
the F10 version NOW, and likewise, create Fx Bugzilla versions at the 
time Fx is branched in CVS.
