I only meant more work preparing the advisories, not doing QA and
everything. If people prefer having it that way, I'll gladly do it.

Yes, but they're not sent to Bugtraq or Full Disclosure. If it's okay to
send 16 different advisories out to those lists when we have 4 fixed
packages, then I don't mind doing it.

OK, you've convinced me. I agree that the bugs would be easier to track
if we had a separate bug per release.

Dom sent a mail to this list on Apr 12 to document the tags.
You are absolutely right that it's a bad kludge. The problem is we're
using Red Hat's bugzilla, so it's built-in tracking functionality
doesn't work for Fedora Legacy. Instead of Red Hat's "Assigned" and
"Need Info" statuses, we would need something like "Needs Work", "Needs
PUBLISH", "Needs BUILD", "Needs VERIFY", "Needs Release".
I am not a bugzilla expert, does someone know if different statuses can
be created per product?
