Hi Vishesh,

Sorry for not asking you in advance. I just wanted to beatify the
frameworks-* products while I'm at it.

Let me explain how I came up with tthe new Baloo products in Bugzilla
and why it seems to me like a trivial decision:
 1. Because the Baloo core (libKF5Baloo*.so, balooctl, etc) is part of
KF5, the Bugzilla product for it should be called consistently:
 2. We already had some bugs against baloo-5.13.0+, so I moved them
into "frameworks-baloo".
 3. The old product "Baloo" should be obsoleted because otherwise it
will be hard for users to decide if they need to report bugs against
"Baloo" or "frameworks-baloo".
 4. If we obsolete the "Baloo" product, we need to have other products
to let users report Baloo-related bugs. For KF5::Baloo we already have
"frameworks-baloo", and besides it we have 3 UIs to Baloo: krunner,
KCM "File Search" and baloo-widgets.
 4a. For the Baloo runner we already have the component "filesearch"
of the "krunner" product in Bugzilla.
 4b. Regarding KCM... I thought there was no umbrella product for
KCMs, but actually we have "systemsettings/kcm_[...]" components, and
systemsettings/kcm_baloo seems to be the best place for Baloo KCM.
Nice catch!
 4c. For baloo-widgets we also need another product because it does
not fit any existing products.

After we obsolete the Bugzilla product "Baloo", you won't need to look
inside it anymore because all the bugs remaining in that product have
been reported against old versions of Baloo and therefore can all be
