reporting pre-release bugs

From time-to-time, pre-releases are made of our software so that we can do internal testing before doing a public release.  If you find a bug in a pre-release, please try to confirm whether the bug also appears in the previous public release.  This is in keeping with the policy that the “version” field in bugzilla refers to the first known release with the bug.  Since pre-releases are not released to the public, we don’t clutter up the readme file with new bugs introduced in a pre-release.  They are just an artifact of the release process.  Such bugs should be marked with the version “pre-release” in bugzilla.  But if the bug was really around in a public release before the pre-release, we need to have that fact reflected in the readme.  Thanks in advance for your help with this.
