BTW, I agree with this point, and I was not asking for a BZ entry that
included all needed to replicate it. That has never been a requirement or
goal, although, when it is possible to do so without an extraordinary
effort, it is reasonable to do as a 2nd order task. I'm just looking for BZ
entries (or equivalent) for substantive (non-trivial) code changes to help
with tracking. I'll leave it up to the committer to decide what is
substantive vs trivial. Examples of changes I would find trivial: fixing
warnings (e.g., checkstyle, etc), adding/fixing javadoc or code comments,
simple  (non-extensive) code refactoring, cleanup, or organization. Common
sense should apply.
