Agreed, however, a simple email message notifying them about the new version
serves the same purpose, and doesn't create a (possibly unnecessary) bug
report to deal with the issue.
Creating a bug report has the advantage of sharing the status of the issue
with other users and developers, but the disadvantage of annoying developers
who are oversensitive about bug reports.
