Ok, I see.

I guess what bothers me is the lack of comments on the bug report then,

bug won't be fixed without offering any explanation.

I still think that increasing the release flag and add a comment is a
better thing to do.

Right, I'll either create a new report or push directly then, I'll try
my best to not mess up the workflow :)
