But I have historically trusted the developer changeset comments over the state of the bug tracking system.
There have been very few cases (< 1%) where the changeset comments have had the wrong bug number.
The bug tracking system sometimes lags behind the actual change being integrated.
If in the future we can do better at making both more accurate.
