I added 402289 to the list and imported it.  However I noticed that it is
incorrectly using the See Also list.  The see-also list is supposed to
only be used to reference external bugs (according to the documentation
[0]), but in this case it's referencing an INTERNAL bug.  Specifically,
402289 is referencing https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=548357 in
its see_also field.

According to the documentation internal references should use the
depends_on or blocks entries.  Should I fix these along the way?  If I
don't then we will leave dangling references after gnome BZ goes away.  If
I do fix it, then I need some heuristic to know whether it should be a
depends_on or a blocks entry.  Or maybe it should just be fixed in gnome
BZ first?
