Possibly bikeshedding here, but would it be better to change the wording
  If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version
- of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
+ of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug report, updating
+ the "version" field accordingly.

i.e. are we referring to reopening that specific bug report within our
database, rather than in a more loose sense referring to opening a new
bug report against the same notional issue (if that makes sense).  As a
maintainer, I'd prefer to have the old unfixed report reopened, rather
than have a new bug report that's a duplicate; sometimes there's
valuable information in the comments.

Hope this is helpful
