Hi Ben,
thanks for taking care of this.
However, had a couple of problems with the new bugzilla upgrade:
tried to use the BUG: git hook to close a bug, but it neither closed
the bug nor posted the comment.
then tried to manually post a comment with a link to the commit.
I guess the scary looking url
triggered the antispam, as that comment gets blocked
