Default Identifying which defects are fixed in a given Linux driver release

The following question is intended for NVidia engineering:

I see a few posts that indicate that NVidia engineering recognizes and can reproduce a given failure mode, and then assigns a defect id, apparently only for internal tracking. Are the defects that are fixed by a given Linux driver release published with the release in some way that the user can read? If so, could someone in NVIDIA point me to an example of where those defect ids that are fixed by a given Linux driver release are published online?

I have searched through the links at http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_d..._1.0-9755.html and through the README link on a recent release posting (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=91896), and could not find such a list of fixed defect ids.

Thanks!

With some exceptions, the NVIDIA UNIX graphics driver changelogs do not currently list individual problems/bugs. However, we are looking into ways to improve the changelogs to provide better visibility for future graphics driver releases.

Thanks zander. Adding the defect id's to a subsection in the README html files might be a good first start.

This is extremely good news and will certainly save us some time.
