No, not all bugs. Let's say bugs that should really be fixed.
To be honest, I don't get the sense of this container, because you could
use the importance for that classification. But of course that's very
subjective. Maybe Günther would like to comment.

Not necessarily. This patch has been pushed and will definately be included
in the next bugfix release. I think adding each bug included to the
release bug does not make sense. All bugs addressed will be listed in the
release notes and it would take too much additional time to add all bug to
the release bug. But of course we can discuss that.

This one will be included in the next maintenance release as well. The
latency is due to the two security releases which included the security
fixes only.
