if you were speaking generally, that would be one thing.  but if you're going 
to report an error (and bugzilla should be used for that), you should show the 
latest version failing and simply make a note that it's been this way sine XX 
version.

if there's a problem with the dist tarball generation, then Alfred would like 
to know.  if there's a problem with the cvs tarball snaps, then that should be 
posted to libc-alpha.
