Well, they probably did, or at least I didn't get any reports saying

I would like to propose blocking packages at the F15 alpha compose
point if they have not resolved their FTBFS from F14 or earlier.
So that means that those packages would have gotten blocked.

Again, that's not what's mentioned above.

GNOME's dup finder:
The README is probably outdated, as per:
KDE and a number of other bugzillas seem to have similar infrastructure.
I'm pretty sure it wouldn't work due to abrt's use of attachments
instead of full backtraces.
Also sorely missing from the RH bugzilla is an equivalent to the
"browse" functionality in the GNOME BZ:
And the fact that NEEDINFO is a real status, not a flag, which makes it
easier to filter.
