What I'm thinking of is a policy that'll allow us to auto-generate
ChangeLog and NEWS from commit data so that whatever is posted on the

the commit.  This will allow for tighter integration with patchwork,
to mark committed patches as closed automatically, leaving just
superseded patches to clean up.

Would using Bugzilla to keep track of which release each bug was
fixed in be a appealing solution? It would make it easier to find

As long as it handles point releases (that is, can track that a bug was
fixed in 2.22.1 and 2.23, so the generated NEWS entries for both those
releases include that bug), it seems a reasonable approach.

The Target Milestone drop down box can only be used for a single
version. It's populated with minor release (and a few 2.2.x and
2.3.x ones). The Keywords free form text field has been used for
fixes backported to other releases so it should work for point
releases too.


PS Here's a link to a search for all bugs whose Target Milestone
is set to 2.22. It currently returns 40 out of the 192 bugs listed
in the NEWS file in 2.22.
