Sounds like an NP-complete problem, but if you manage to solve it
let me know and I'll turn it into the first line of triage for Infra
bugs. ;)

LOL, thanks for making me take the last hour reading Wikipedia pages about computational complexity theory! :P

No, in all seriousness, I wasn't actually asking anyone to boil the ocean, mathematically. I think doing a couple things just making the categorization more obvious (a UI thing, really) and doing some (hopefully simple?) inspection of some control group of patches that we know do not introduce any code changes themselves and comparing to another group of patches that we know *do* introduce code changes to Nova, and then seeing if there are a set of E-R issues that consistently appear in *both* groups. That set of E-R issues has a higher likelihood of not being due to Nova, right?

OK, so perhaps it's not the most scientific or well-thought out plan, but hey, it's a spark for thought... ;)
