I haven't found a really clean way to grab just the "active" list of
LibreOffice version numbers, but I refactored some of the
version-grabbing code in query.pl and made it possible to get version
numbers from either the query.cgi or the enter_bug.cgi page. That
seems to work well (and covers some, but not all of the versions
listed in the blacklist right now). Jean -- I'm not sure if that quite
addresses what you're asking after regarding fdo#55460.

In my github repo:
"Version Numbers: Avoid "inactive" #s by slurping from enter_bug.cgi"

Rob -- I'll try to ping Joel and see what he says about version
numbers. I think people are more reticent to mark version numbers as
inactive on Bugzilla than on the BSA, so we may need to keep the
blacklist around for a bit longer...
