So I understand it, if a person sends feedback via Hendrix, under the
product 'Minefield', that message would go to mozilla.feedback.firefox,
not mozilla.feedback.firefox.prerelease, because
mozilla.feedback.firefox.prerelease is for discussion. Correct?

Hendrix feedback could go into any group - there are no policy
stipulations. I believe the plan is to have Hendrix feedback on
pre-releases go into the prerelease group.

This may require the Product picker on the Hendrix front page to be more
discerning. But also, not all Hendrix submissions come via
http://hendrix.mozilla.org/ - there are forms which submit to Hendrix on
other pages too, and these may hard-code a particular Product.

To that list, add:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=375935
"create newsgroup mozilla.feedback.companion.ebay"

My proposal was designed with this group in mind also.

The new groups seem to be up, but not accepting new posts.
