      Description

      If an analyzer provides rule R1 classified as a Code Smell, it will be included in profiles as a Code Smell rule and issues raised from it will be raised as Code Smells.

      If an upgrade of the analyzer changes R1 to a Bug, new issues will be raised as Bugs, but old issues will remain Code Smells.

      The confusion caused by this difference could be mitigated if change log entries were added for each profile affected by the change of type for R1.

      Specifically, when the type of a rule changes, the change logs of quality profiles that include that rule should explicitly show the change.
