It records them for possible future reference, but otherwise ignores
Unrecognised fixed-in versions are similarly mostly ignored, although
the CGI scripts will sometimes use the presence of a fixed-in version
*somewhere* as an indicator that the bug is fixed. This is only as a
last-resort fallback if no better information is available, though.
