Well, the idea was to add a snapshot of the list of
known bugs at the point of the relase.
As a service for admins and packagers
so they can easily tell what the known issues were at
the time of the release.

If it is too much effort to create this list or
if the list would take too much room, then we can
skip this.

The more imprtant point is the scheduled bugfix releases and
the inability to block a release by a "severe" bug.
