That only solves one of the two problem I'm trying to solve (albeit the
one that is more important to me). That way users still have no easy way
to query for reports about issues that are no regressions – say
something is broken and they have no idea if it once worked or never
worked at all.

I agree to the last point and yeah, maybe regressions are the more
important problem we should work on – at least from the perspective of
kernel development.  But from the users perspective (and
reporting-issues.rst is written for that perspective) it feel a bit
unsatisfying to not have a solution to query for existing report,
regressions or not. Hmmmm...

Ciao, Thorsten
