So, I'm not a big fan of cluttering bugzilla with bugs in master
*unless* the bug stays there for weeks and you already know who to
assign to (to have the bug report serve as a reminder for that person to
fix later).  But I'm not strongly against this.  Also, sometimes we
notice that something is broken on master and fix it immediately in a
few days.

The better thing to do is to narrow down the commits that may have
broken it if you know the last commit that worked.  If you are willing,
you could even take advantage of git bisect to achieve this, in theory.

I saw Miklos and Caolan discussing something like this today on IRC.
Not sure if it's the same thing or not.

Yes.  libreoffice-qa at lists.freedesktop.org.
