Eraser ...

I let a couple of these pass by but just thought I'd mention it (just in case any other ex-MySQLer is experiencing anything similar...

Nothing is removed from historical records. The bugs system maintains track of everything.
What you see is a late administrative action. You were assigned as reviewer for that particular bug. Since you are not an employee anymore, you were removed from that role.
Now, we have a rule that only employees can be reviewers and I believe we should change that, but this is a different story and at the moment the reason for that change is a simple administrative cleanup.

Hmm ok.

Still strange that these old closed bugs are being edited.

Oh well.

the real edit was to add something to the list of affected support issues.

the reviewer change is just a side-effect of you no longer being among the list of reviewers -- that means that the editing form defaulted to an empty reviewer and it got changed when the form was submitted.

the change in reviewers wasn't deliberate.

Thanks Jim... That makes sense.
