This one is still open. You should receive email notifications whenever any of
your bug reports are updated. If your email address is not in the list of
people who are notified for this bug, you can add yourself via the Bugzilla

In general, the search feature of Bugzilla can be used to get some insight
into the bugfixing activity. If you have an account there, you can store the
query for future use.
If you are interested in improving content quality, then the new "Has improper
value for" property should be very useful, too. You need to update a site's
data to get it set for existing pages (using Special:SMWAdmin). I already
found this very useful to fix various unnoticed issues on some of our sites.
See e.g. http://semanticweb.org/wiki/Property:Has_improper_value_for
(this still shows some things that one could fix).
I also found it surprising how few errors exist overall even on a site like
semanticweb.org that has quite a lot of abandoned content that might well have
been broken during the long life of SMW. I guess this shows that we are pretty
good at maintaining backwards compatibility after all :-)
