bugs and either closed them if they were no longer relevant, or moved them
to a more appropriate component.

You are welcome to keep using tracking bugs, but you should put them in a

the tracking and followup. And that's a good way to remember to close out
tracking bugs when we're done with them!

As a reminder, the blocking relationship to use is that all the relevant
component bugs block the tracking bug, so the tracking bug depends on its
component work. Then when the
