If you already use a bug tracker, doesn't that provide a mechanism to
file bugs against multiple versions or maybe clone bugs into multiple
versions? Bugzilla for example does the latter, at least in my old
2.22.x, which wouldn't directly answer the question which bug does
span over multiple versions. But what you could do is create some
master bug for your error and dependant bugs for each version in which
this error occurs. At least you could use the reporting tools of your
bug tracker.

In my opinion, depending on the concrete bug and how important it has
to be fixed and all that stuff, having more than one bug for the
different versions is of benefit if you think of things like branches
which aren't supported anymore and therefore don't need a bug fix,
some need a fix but not now, for some branches this bug is a show
stopper etc. I would use the bug tracker for such things.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
