I strongly object to that..:-)

Release Notes are the best helpers for me to decide if I can propose
an update to our stable packages.

Doing the same with Bugzilla is probably possible but is certainly a
giant PITA. And this of course makes me understand why maintaining the
release notes *is* a giant PITA for you, Karolin, of course..:-)

At least, having the list of bugs fixed by a given release in the
release notes would be helpful.
