The undocumented components are:
- None
- Cross-Build
- email

I wonder why "None" exists, given that there's already "no selection" (maybe to distinguish issues that have been triaged already from the ones who haven't?).
"email" refers to issue related to the email package, and I'm not sure what exactly classify as cross-build issues.

None has over 1300 issues, mostly old (historical). It could be removed from current use, I think (if it is possible to hide such a thing).

Cross-build has just 6 issues collected together in last three months. I do not think that is really enough to justify adding it, but someone did. Mathias, can you define it?

'None' is not available from the UI, and I suspect it's automatically set for issues reported via email.  This might be a bug in Roundup, but I haven't verified it yet.

Apparently it's set automatically on new issues if no other component is specified, even if the issue is created from the web interface.

New changeset 2889f71c9e20 by Ezio Melotti in branch 'default':
#15121: document the "email" component.
msg184137 - (view) Author: Ezio Melotti (ezio.melotti) * (Python committer) Date: 2013-03-14 07:24
I documented the email component, and removed the "None" component.
I'm still not sure what to do about Cross-build -- maybe it should be removed as well.  Its name is self-explanatory, so even if it's not removed and it's not documented I don't think it's a big deal.
