Mass deduplication and reassignment of ABRT bugs

As a part of the ABRT Backtrace Deduplication Service[1], we are
planning to close and reassign old ABRT bugs in bugzilla. Bugs which
were found to have similar backtraces will be closed as duplicates of
the bug with most CCed users. If the bugs originate from different
components and their backtraces have a common part traced to another
component, the bug may be also reassigned.

We would like to run it sometimes next week, possibly on Tuesday. The
bugzilla changes will be made from abrt-bot at account
and it will close about one third of the currently opened ABRT bugs
with parsable backtrace. You can already see some of the expected
results in the testing bugzilla at

If your bug was closed or reassigned incorrectly, please reopen or
reassign it back, it will not be touched again by the bot.
