I have to disagree here: we are trying to identify the new components we
need so that we can start logging tasks in Bugzilla. This happens before
we have code written for the component so, arguably, before we even have
The alternative would be to log tasks in a proxy component and then
request the creation of a component because we have more than 10 items...
This seems artificial to me: if we are creating something new (e.g. the
dashboard), we shouldn't shy away of creating a component for it in
Bugzilla so that we can park tasks in there.
