historically have found it really hard in the mysql bug tracker to do
reasonable searches on OS. Especially if something is Linux 2.4 specific
or Linux 2.6 specific.

So there could be a difference between "observed on" and "affects".

e.g. bug could be found on Linux 2.4.18 but affects all of 2.4 series
and none of 2.6 (think O_DIRECT :)

launchpad can have several branches linked to the one bug - a useful
feature sometimees.

it also lets you link to other bug trackers.

could be useful here too - linking back to MySQL bug tracker or Drizzle
bug tracker (launchpad).
