@koobs, read the tooltip. See Also is to track issues reported upstream or other downstreams.
(In reply to Jan Beich from comment #1)
We use it for more than that (any url of an accepted format) and we have made modifications to the accepted formats to allow more than just the default (including PR's, like in this case). It will very likely expand to include other non issue/pr references, such as mailing list posts, etc. The tooltip is under-inclusive, just a bugzilla default, which are harder to change (not runtime configuration based)
Ultimately the aim of See Also: is to have a single place where all internal/external references can be put, so they people dont need to search through an issues entire comment list to get at them.
