Well, thera are no ERRATA for fedora-extras (in fact there are 155
bugs closed as such).

I looked a bit at bugs in "Fedora Core" actually closed CURRENTRELEASE
vs ERRATA. There seems to be quite a bit of self-iterpretation going
on. CURRENTRELEASE is actually used even for what RAWHIDE should be.

There doesn't seem to be quite a big difference between RAWHIDE and
NEXTRELEASE other than RAWHIDE not allowed for RHEL.

So CURRENTRELEASE means "already fixed, you are not using the latest
updates"? Doesn't seem that useful. Maybe the resolutions needs to be
relabeled with more appropriate naming. In this case ALREADYFIXED
would be better than CURRENTRELEASE.
