I don't know, I was asking if this is what we are now using. I usually
just put it in the body of the changelog, something like:

More details about this can be found at: http://crosbug.com/24165

Making sure that no relevant info is only at that link and not in the
changelog comment, as bug reporting sites have a tendancy to disappear
at times.
