I don't have a problem with dropping Documentation; but not
translations, the way it works in mdv buzilla is that when the
Component is set to Translations the i18n ML was CC'ed, which is
advantageous as translators are best fit to fix such bugs (this raises
the question of where translators want those emails to go, which one
of their ML's?).

See above.

Drop it, but the note about "For security sensitive bugs please make
sure to assign to security@ as well as tick the checkbox above" as you
can see here: https://qa.mandriva.com/enter_bug.cgi?product=Mandriva%20Linux&format=guided

Point is, such bugs can only be seen by the reporter and sec team.

All of them, basically anything that has to do with the release ISO's. Examples:
- missing package from DVD or Live ISO's
- wrong md5sum/sha1sum on the mirrors
- missing/corrupt ISO's
- CD ISO's that don't fit on a 700MB CD (as I saw with some of the
2010.2 ISO's which had to be recreated by mdv)
