:-) I guess, there is no shortage of bugs to be CC'd on.

I love the "fixed in 3.6.1" type automated comments - they're -really-
useful for QA to see which versions a bug is fixed in and to set
expectations right I guess.
I suppose we could ask/pay Tollef to work on extending:
To add some flag magic for a new option for some the "ignore fixedin
XYZ" version stuff - but that's a bit of a PITA to maintain going
forward I suspect; I wonder if a mail filter could do the same.

Yep - I guess auto-spamming can go too far; OTOH, it is rather relevant
that a fix for a bug has shown up and useful for a reporter to know that
there is a build of it to try out. Also we fix on average ~6 bugs per
day though we want to raise that - so, even if they're all in calc - if
we get it right with a single new bugzilla comment that says:
"a gerrit branch, with a patch that fixes this bug was built
for the specified platform >here<"
And then no further comments afterwards seems like it might be on the
acceptable side ?
Anyhow - thanks for raising the issue ! :-)
