I tend to use aliases to get the PRs a sensible id.

E.g. 'poppler-21.04'.

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=poppler-21.04.0

which can be found easily by knowing the scheme, opposed to the lookup via id

https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=254008


I tried to use the alias in this commit here (to see whether it works :D):
https://cgit.freebsd.org/ports/commit/?id=2f973a2955686494aff30a15f18be3fa0492d9de

Unfortunately, the PR was not updated.


Would it be possible to extend the PR-handler to accept aliases?

So that 
   PR: poppler-21.04.0
leads to the same as 
   PR: 265008
would have?
