Nope, nothing in the 'ug-tracker. :-P

We don't typically open a bug report for an issue which has been
fixed, no. Personally, I wouldn't mind if a bug report was opened
against the relevant release, the rev number where the problem was
fixed was recorded, and the bug report was closed against target
milestone 1.5. I've found this process to be a useful tracking system
for those who come after, since it provides a higher level view of
what's been fixed than the change log messages, and is often available
before the CHANGES file or release notes.
