Great, thx!

Maybe, but that will always bear the risk that something gets in the way
(say a big problem is found in the proposed fix) and the regression in
the end gets forgotten and remains unfixed -- which my tracking tries to
prevent. Hence I'd say doing it the other way around (adding all
regressions reported by the 0-day folks to regzbot and remove reports
after a week or two if it's apparently something that can be ignored)
would be the better approach.

Yeah, the problem is just: it's easy to forget the regression to the
tracking. :-/

Okay, was worth asking. :-D

Yeah, I'm pretty sure we'll find a way to make everybody happy.

Ciao, Thorsten
