That makes sense, indeed.

In Gnocchi, we use the "old" workflow of fix-commited/fix-released. We
also use Launchpad series to matches branches, so for example in:

we're able to track the patch both for master (where the fix is
currently only commited) and in the 1.3 branch where the fix has now
been released as part as 1.3.1.

This is done manually since Gerrit/infra does not implement this AFAIK.
It would be awesome to have some way to see that if I've a patch with
Closes-Bug on stable/1.3, then it should add 1.3 series on the bug, etc.
Since we have a low number of bugs in Gnocchi, I can allow me to do that
manually for now.

So I'm a bit afraid that the new way of doing things breaks this
workflow we've been using and that has the upside of reflecting the
state of bugs accurately.
