Bugzilla does not require you to know to know that much. When it comes
to components, you don't need to know. Last time I checked it read: "If
necessary, just guess".
And when comes to version of the distro, you can easily determine it by
clicking "System" and choosing "About fedora". I also believe the
version number is visible somewhere during the boot.
For other field that bother you, such as "Priority" or "Severity" my
advice for you is: Don't be bothered by them if you don't know what they
do. Do not touch them.

Hm I am wondering why gvfs depends on 50M samba-common. Maybe the samba
dependent part could be made into a subpackage?
Could you please file a bug report? It would be a nice exercise of
filing tickets in Bugzilla, you can utilize the hints from above

Noone has to use Safari. In fact, it is usually a pretty bad idea to do
so. However it might be nice to have it working there...
