Could I draw people's attention to the fact that bz requires a version
for CURRENTRELEASE closure. I _far_ prefer this over ERRATA which I
regard as a "Hell, I have no idea what resolution this should have so
I'll close it as such". With CURRENTRELEASE the version field
indicates for other people who can replicate the same bug what version
it is fixed in - dupes etc.

I'd go so far as to say ERRATA should be removed completely.
