Nope, rather use ERRATA if you fix it for the FC version in question,
RAWHIDE if only for fixing it in development (and not planning to do it
for the FC version reported against) instead as CURRENTRELEASE is only
for stuff already fixed at the time of reporting the bug ("already"
being the keyword in the description above ;-).
