I've renabled it. (I used the default apache configuration which
denies it from most hosts.)

The way this is typically done is by severity+versioning.

So bugs of severity > than a certain level are release critical; you
can indicate whether a bug is fixed or not in a particular version
using the version tracking. [That is, you would either close the bug
with a Version pseudoheader, or use fixed foobug fooversion; in a
command to control.]

Then, assuming the BTS knows what version of the 22 series 23.1 is a
decendant of, bugs that are fixed there are automatically marked fixed
in all decendants of that version, but are still marked buggy all
decendants of an unfixed version (and unknown in all other versions.)
[It may be worthwhile to tie this to VCS versions, but the code to do
that integration isn't there.[1]]

You can see the graphs of what I'm talking about for a semi-complex
package in Debian here:

AFAICT, that's not yet the case. It's basically waiting for one of the
mail administrators to put in the hook to send bugs, or for me to do
it manually.
