So if I am not wrong, in bugzilla, we have :
- products
- component, contained in products
- and various field, per bug, 

and the way we organize everything will impact the layout. 

And for now, we are just talking of :
- distributions 
- website 

this lead me to 3 questions, regarding the proposal "potential layout"
at the end of the page :

- if we do have 1 product per distribution, doesn't that mean that we
will have a lot of product in 5 years ?  While we can filter on the
first page and show only supported distros, this would be a quite long
entry on the bug page ( show_bug.cgi ) if we want to change the product.

- bugzilla cannot fill bugs for multiple releases, but AFAIK, something
like this is planned in the future ( 4.X with X>2, as said on
http://meetbot.mageia.org/mageia-meeting/2010/mageia-meeting.2010-11-08-19.06.log.html#l-147 ). What would be the requirement of such setup, what is planned on bugzilla ?

- what about requests that are not for website, like generic sysadmin
request, or maybe community process, etc ?
