Putting this in the manual means that there is now an onus to make sure
it's removed when we move to F9, assuming that particular bug is fixed.
Do you take the responsibility to do that? :-)

My point is that bug listings have their place, and manuals are probably
not that place.  Technical documentation generally includes release
notes for that purpose.  We have a bugs page that tracks these:


I wouldn't link everywhere you find a bug, either, because again, this
multiplies the effort required to re-edit the guide for each release.
Having a link to bug lists or errata in a general information page at
the front of the Guide is enough.
