FWIW I had to do a similar thing recently when I set all TripleO bugs
reported pre-liberty Incomplete - I ended up hacking up process_bugs.py
from release-tools:


Perhaps we can adapt one of the scripts there (or add a new one if needed)
that can be used for several projects?

Here's a diff of my hacked-up version FWIW (I never got around to cleaning
it up and pushing it anywhere):


It shows how to add the comment and set the state, which you may be able to

One thing I am unsure of is, can you actually force-expire bugs, or only
mark them incomplete and wait for launchpad to expire them (exact criteria
for this aren't that clear to me..)
