All koffice bugs were copied to calligra, so that's irrelevant. It might be relevant for kmail vs kmail2, of course. That's up to their maintainers, but honestly, keeping bugs open for obsolete software just because they haven't been triaged to check whether they are still present in a successor isn't going to help make bugzilla into a useful tool.
