Ok, I think I step back on my initial proposal and just go with tagging
the tickets (keywords) we are interested in with '11.2.0'.
As we need to as well triage the 'priority' field for bugs based on our
release goals we need to rely on our bug tracker anyhow. For new tickets
we will try and file them at the sl tracker and duplicate the tickets
important for us on the olpc tracker. Let's see if that works out for us.
