Hi All,

I think we should just collapse to a 3.x series and have that tell you 
that it is too old.

But what I also noticed was that we are asing for:
- Version the bug appeared
- Latest known-working version

It seems to me that the 1st one is always the 2nd version + 1. If 
somebody looks at it.
Shouldn't one of those be the version people are working in, as that 
needs to be checked by BSA to see if it needs to give this warning.
