Doing A is a major annoyance for us packagers, it splits the discussion into
multiple threads, it floods us with even more bugmail and it brings no
benefit as we have to fix the issue in all affected releases anyway, we
should do it for all at the same time and close it once the updates are
pushed (just set any of the updates to close the bug and the others not,
they should be going out at the same time anyway - Rawhide should just get
fixed right away). I'm also very unhappy with the Security Team doing A and
think the security bug policy should be changed.
