The way I see it, a cauldron bug has a lower priority than a Mageia 1 or 2 
bug, since the cauldron bug must be fixed before Mageia 3, whereas users 
already actually use Mageia 1 and Mageia 2 and can be affected by the bug.

So if creating actual bug reports for Mageia 2 would increase the chance for 
the bug to be taken care of, I would still favor cloning every open still 
valid bug in Mageia 2.

MGA2TOO on the whiteboard could be enough maybe, provided packagers actually 
know how to use it (it means that a search for MGA2 bugs must take into 
account both those set to MGA2 and those with the MGA2TOO text in whiteboard), 
but it will make statistics harder to build.
