FINISHED: did you received a spam from qa@netbeans.org?

Update: all the issues are moved. Look at next post for more details.

Today(22/12) we started moving of more than 5.000 issues in our issuezilla bug tracking system. Till now more than 3.500 has been removed (and the number is still growing). The are some inconveniences for issuezilla users but we wanted to minimize them.

ProblemSolution
More than 5.000 emails will be sent to issues@ mailing lists Remove everybody from the list. And add all subsrcibers to issues@platform after the move
Every reporter, person on CC will receive email about change of component/subcomponent of an issue. Because of issuezilla bug - 11998. All notification emails are sent by qa@netbeans.org. It should be easy to delete all emails from this sender.
Votes are lost because of component/subcomponent change. That's bug in issuezila - 47233. We will add comment with number of votes to every affected issue
Exception Reporter mapping needs to be changed tool owners were warned
Users don't know where to report issues New description to "platform" component was added
I would like refactor the package name "openide" into "platform" at the same time. it won't happen. I don't see any reason. It would cause backward compatibility problems
Comments:

It's really good that you're organizing this better, but some of the mails I got as a result had to do with bugs so old that they don't even apply any more (due to changes in NetBeans over the years). For example, I received messages on bugs that were reported during the NetCAT program for NetBeans 3.6.

Are there any plans to try and remove these old, no longer applicable issues?
