This depends on (a) how much information your target reader expects to
receive about each bug resolution, and (b) how much information you can
give out about each bug resolution without revealing proprietary technical
IP (or any other information about the bug that your Marketing people might
have a cow about if you reveal it). If anyone within your development team
expresses any other preference, be sure to verify that it doesn't conflict
with (a) and (b).
