Unfortunately, mantis is seldom updated when changes are merged back  
these days. I used to do that for all changes merged back by anyone,  
but it's become too much work (and it's also much more work to figure  
out this information afterwards compared to immediately updating  
mantis after merging, since in the latter case you don't have to look  
up whether something was merged back and if so, in which revision).
