To see when the release was changed we have "Revision: XXXXX" in
%changelog. You can also use 'mgarepo rpmlog <pkg>' to get the pkg
changelog from cmd or use svnweb.mageia.org to see the changes more

An abbreviation for Bugzilla.Gnome.Org, widely used by other distros
(mdv/suse/fedora/etcetc) too in their %changelogs. Just like for an
example are rhbz (redhat bugzilla) and fdo (freedesktop.org) used.
IIRC there is a policy (maybe just a draft) where's mentioned that
when referring to external bugs the format should be "(XXXX#12345)"
where XXXX stands for some abbreviation like bgo and numbers stands
for the bug number.
