But none of them are on the Signed-off-by: line area, right?

Also, putting it in the text of the changelog, with a url, is fine. And
it had better be a public url, otherwise it makes no sense at all. I've
seen many public SUSE and Ubuntu urls in changelog entries, any
non-public ones should not be in there at all.

Just like with gerrit ids in signed-off-by areas, references to internal
bugzilla entries, in the signed-off-by area, should not be there at all.
