Description of problem:

Please do not reply directly to this email. All additional
comments should be made in the comments box of this bug report.

Although the headers claim that a comment was added/changed, no
comment was added nor changed in the bug. I think I have received more
such empty mails on this particular bug.
Bug #127726 blocks three private bugs which I can't view. My guess is
that something added in the blocked bugs triggered bugzilla to send
mail down the food chain too. If that it so, bugzilla should either
add an explanatory but non-disclosing comment in the mail, like
"comment/person/attachment added to blocked bug #999999", or not send
mail up the dependecies at all.
Note that I reported #127726 in bugzilla-current but the message-ID of
the mail says beta, so the version-release of this bug might be wrong.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Should be fixed in new release of Bugzilla.
While you're at it, one more thing. Closing this bug caused the following
mail to be sent:
What |Removed |Added
The URL in the message is wrong and gives a 500 error.
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/beta/ works and
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla-old/ works too, but
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/ no longer exists. The
mails sent by both bugzillas need to be adjusted accordingly.
