Regarding unsupported releases, what is the plan here?

- close the bug as not supported anymore: less work but somewhat annoying
and frustrating for the reporter(s)

If you do that, then why should I bother to report new bugs if nobody is
going to care, even read it?

A good working tracker also depends on reporters following up. If the bug didn't
get touched while the release it affects was supported, and reporter has
switched to a supported release in which reporter can reproduce, reporter should
update the bug to the current release and not wait on triagers, QA or assignee
to notice. If the bug amounts to a blocker WRT to the reporter, he should note
that too. IOW, reporters shouldn't wait for activity that may or may not occur
if they care about their own reports.
