It'd be cool if there were a newbug@ or similar mail address that
automatically also posted to -bugs or so.

I think it's mentioned somewhere in the commit message most of the time
- but not in an easy to locate way. If we'd agree on putting something like:
Bug: #XXX
Affected-Versions: 9.5-
Fixed-Versions: 9.3-
in commit messages that'd be a fair bit easier to get into the release notes..
