Yes. I guess localization bugs are now submitted under native-lang
-> locale; so changing l10n to l18n makes sense. Looking at
https://issues.apache.org/ooo/describecomponents.cgi?product=l10n 
"helpcontent" is rather ambiguos. If it is about the Online Help
application, this belongs to the application framework; if its about the
help files, it belongs to documentation; if it about help files
translation, it belongs to native-lang->locale...

All the other items belong to i18n:

- BiDi
- i18npool
- localedata

but "www" I have no idea what that means in this context.


May be the new QA contributors can perform an experiment in submitting
new bugs, sure new eyes can tell how hard it is to guess which is the right
product-component, and how much sense do some categories have.
