Yeah. I'm a bit unsure how to handle such cases better in regzbot. I
consider marking them manually as "needinfo", "blurry", "ambiguous", or
something like that. Then regzbot can put them into a separate section
or mark them somehow.

This is one I'd for now consider "ambiguous" for now.

This afaics should help soon for the second case:

Regzbot didn't pick up this patch automatically (and I forgot to point
it towards it...), as support for tracking regressions mainly handled in
bug trackers is still missing. It's pretty high on my todo list, but
nevertheless it might take a few weeks before I get to that, as real
world forces me to focus on a few other things first (some regzbot
related, some not). That's why I have not much time left currently to
work on regzbot's code. :-/

Thx for letting me know. This was a issue mainly discussed in and another area where regzbot is missing a feature:
to detect activity and patches there. On my todo list, too. But one step
at a time...

Ciao, Thorsten
