Maybe it would be more work than just updating the bugs manually but would
it be possible to have a bug description template for each MRE? Where we
can fill the bug description appropriately for each package (set of
packages). For most MREs we have a template of those bug descriptions in
the exception itself, and we could use them to create the bug with the
"almost correct" content.

Removing the task for the development release seems to not be an issue.

Thanks again for your work on this Bryce!
