Because normally a single commit fixes a single bug and the commit
message says it clearly, so it's easy to spot the fixes.

No we don't need to, we just need to look for the fix we are
interested in as I described before.

Don't think that when we get a bug report in mga bugzilla is because
only mga users are affected ;) most of the time there's already an
upstream bug report so we start following it and give any useful
information we have about it. If it isn't we create it and follow it.
