I'll try to remember that in CentOS, "issue" usually means "bug" or
"problem:-)" I found myself wondering what on earth Johnny was talking
about a few moments ago.
I have learned a fairly liberal interpretation of "bug," which can
reasonably include documentation problems (including absence and lack of
clarity) and suggestions for improvement. And design and even
specification errors: it seems to me the fact that mkisofs can modify
its source tree is a bug even though this behaviour is documented.
