There was one mentioned in the known issues of the gnucash 3.1 release :)

... and that's what I have done: I have updated all bug references to 
bugs.gnucash.org on the release announcements for gnucash 3.0-3.2.

I have spotted one gtk bug in there which I have left unchanged (that is I 
didn't bother looking for the gitlab equivalent of this one but instead I kept 
bugzilla.gnome.org as domain).

I have done this both on our website and on github.
