What do you mean by "users inquiring about tech support" ?

Who is "we" here ? I think that subscribers of users mailing lists do
what they want and answer the questions they want.

I do not see any rationale for that.
What I suggest is to remove all RC and beta version from BugZilla as
soon as the corresponding final version has been published.
You know, we have users who work with LO 3.3.x and others who plan to
upgrade to LO 3.5.7 at the end of this year ... They don't decide for

I think that removing old versions from bugzilla will give a bad picture
how the technical contributors consider the users community.

Best regards.
