So I did that - result is attached and it doesn't tell me anything except that 
in the 4.10 cycle significantly less bugs have been created than in the other 

How is the data generated? It uses bugzilla Reports -> Tabular Reports 
feature. Select "Status" in "Horizontal Axis" dropdown. Unselect everything in 
the upper area (most important unselect everything in the status list), open 
the "Search by Change History" area, select "[Bug creation]" in "where ANY of 
the fields:" and enter the date of the beta 1 release in the from date field 
and the final tagging date in the to date field. Then click generate report. 
Do that for each of the release cycles.
