If either 0.92.4 or 1.0 alpha is about to be released, can't the
say 'from now on'? (Not really "from now on" specifically, but in
it would be - here's where new bug reports go now.) Because users wouldn't
be reporting bugs for 0.92.3 or older, after 0.92.4 is released, would they?
Not all users will know to install 0.92.4 immediately; Linux users will
tend to upgrade when their distro upgrades them, and that could be some
months out. So we can expect many users will be on 0.92.3 even after
0.92.4 is out, and may need encouragement to re-test on the newer version.
It's questionable that the developers will have much interest in working
on 0.92.4 bug reports, but they'll certainly have little interest in
bugs only affecting 0.92.3 or older.

- No, the new policy about both bug trackers needs to be mentioned and
explained on the 'report bugs' page, at least.
However, for that we still need a reply from Bryce about the Inkscape
version that applies to. Wait for that before you start, please.
I can see why he said 0.92.4 and higher - because that's what is
currently under development. I don't know what Marc's rationale is for
only intending to do this for alpha and higher. Maybe there was some
kind of misunderstanding in their communication earlier, dunno, just
know that we need to know before we make any changes, and even before we
publish the release news article...
On the other pages, probably a simple switch is sufficient, or change to
a link to report bugs page if suitable, to have 1 central place that
needs to be updated instead of multiple places.

- If you find something that needs updating, you can let us know here, then.
