Currently, all Bugzilla cookies last until 2029

These should be some interval from the current date instead.  Probably the right
interval is >24 hours but <60 days.

Keeping this down to short intervals on the scale of a day would reduce problems
when a site changes its cookiepath from something more specific to something
less specific.

Note that these are flushed from the db after 30 days, so whatever we decide
should match that.

Unloved bugs targetted for 2.18 but untouched since 9-15-2003 are being
retargeted to 2.20
If you plan to act on one immediately, go ahead and pull it back to 2.18.

This bug has not been touched by its owner in over six months, even though it is
targeted to 2.20, for which the freeze is 10 days away. Unsetting the target
milestone, on the assumption that nobody is actually working on it or has any
plans to soon.

If you are the owner, and you plan to work on the bug, please give it a real
target milestone. If you are the owner, and you do *not* plan to work on it,
please reassign it to or a .bugs component owner. If you are
*anybody*, and you get this comment, and *you* plan to work on the bug, please
reassign it to yourself if you have the ability.

Reassigning bugs that I'm not actively working on to the default component owner
in order to try to make some sanity out of my personal buglist.  This doesn't
mean the bug isn't being dealt with, just that I'm not the one doing it.  If you
are dealing with this bug, please assign it to yourself.

Unrelated. Bug 134022 is about deleting old login cookies only. Currently, all other cookies are set as being valid till 2038. We may fix it or not, but it's clearly not invalid.
