No, this isn't related to bug tracking, only for merging known fixes to
the 1.6 branch. The 1.6 branch is supposed to get only known good
patches cherry-picked from the master branch, so any bugs found in the
1.6 branch should be re-checked with the master branch, fixed there and
then nominated for a 1.6 minor release. 

Most (all?) of the fixes nominated for the 1.6 branch were initially
bugs reported against master, fixed there and then cherry-picked to the
1.6 branch; you'll see notes on the wiki indicating which bugs are being
fixed by each patch.

Using the wiki page lets me collect a bunch of suitable fixes and then
cut a minor release without missing anything. I've found it easier to
manage than a bugzilla tracking bug, especially as it leaves a very
clear history through the whole process.
