You've elided the part which actually explains what "master bug" means
in that context:
"The first bug listed is the master bug, and its settings (the
settings which must be equal in a normal merge) are assigned to the
bugs listed next."
Since it appears to be confusing, I'll adjust the wording.
Nothing is as inevitable as a mistake whose time has come.
