I checked, there is nothing about emacs in the release notes. I have
submitted #424631 to suggest an addition to the release notes, but I
think that taken isolatedly, this does not make too much sense.

My point was mostly to say that at the end of the year, when Etch will
be half-way in its life, it would be nice for our future users to have a
list of issues easy to overview, in order for them to decide what to
install... Also, users experiencing bugs which only compromise their
work but not their security may appreciate a view of the bug tracking
system in which things specific to later releases or source package QA
is not immediately visible...

Have a nice day,
