Hello guys,

Just informational mail that we plan to enable bnc# checking in the
to ensure that Factory submissions are in fact only listing visible bugs.

Ok, and since we are not allowed to make nearly all of this bugs
public, it will end in either removing the bnc numbers (not good)
or not submitting this fixes to openSUSE at all (very bad for

No, only sensitive private information should be marked private, and
the bug report itself, or at least the non-sensitive bits, should be
left open for all to see.

Or... just file a new bnc with the non-sensitive description, a link
to the private bnc, and add that to the changelog.

I wrote "we are not allowed" and I mean it that way. Even for the
openSUSE community we cannot break laws and contracts.
Creating dummy bugs without any information doesn't help, this is
the same information as without bnc or with one not everybody can read.
