I see what you're saying. But the problem could be in the usage of the
issue tracker. If an issue is open that is confirmed in releases X, Y,
and Z, then the issue probably should not be marked as fixed or closed
until it has actually been fixed in all releases. Doing otherwise is no
different than marking an issue as fixed after correcting it for Win2000
but ignoring WinXP (just an example).
If independent control over the issue is desired (per release), then open
an issue for each release. This has the downside of no
inter-communication.
A nice feature here would be to have an issue split itself (emulate
multiple copies) per attribute (platform, release, etc). That's probably
what you're looking for. I don't know of an issue tracker that does this.
