The issue is dead links.

In particular, if I'm not mistaken, the expire script [1] removes 
patches from the source.winehq.org/patches site after at most 30 days 
[2] which I think is too short for Bugzilla.

Links to mailing list archives should be more durable. Maybe enough for 
them to be acceptable.

[1] https://source.winehq.org/git/tools.git/blob/HEAD:/patches/expire#l24

[2] Yet some patches defy the odds like 62608 which dates back to 2010!
    But it's an exception: the next oldest is 62707 which means the 99 
    intermediate patches were less lucky (then it's 62727, 62752, 62881, 
    62943, ... it's quite random).
