Sure it is wrong, but it is a good guess. If the version in the bug report
is a woody version, then it is most likely a woody bug. If the version is a
sid version, then it might be a sid-only bug. Of course this can only be
checked by hand and requires work.

Sure it has.

Well.. actually I do have checked _my_ bugs if they apply for woody and they
dont. If all developers would do that it would be enough. I still wonder why
we have a 150 bug RC list and nobody is consider them RC anymore. I mean, I
dont care if they are declared "not release critical", but somebody has to
do that, officially.
