My thoughts too.  I keep trying to be nice to these people, and they never 
help out.  So screw 'em.  </personal opinion>

Absolutely.  This works much better when the update tool can automanage bugs, 
so that each gets closed when the update goes out, and we're not so tied to 
every release must be fixed for the bug to be closed.  (note, there can be a 
top level "tracker" but for the CVE itself, and individual bugs are cloned 
for each vuln Fedora release)
