It's the version where the reporter found it. Many reports are filed by 
someone who has only one version available to test. They find something 
and set the TYPO3 version to indicate where *they* found it.
It can exist in earlier or later versions. That's for testers or devs to 
find out. It can be added in a comment that it was also found in version

Sometimes it's set because someone plans to include it in a release. 
Sometimes it's set because a RM likes to include it in a release. 
Sometimes it's set because someone is working on it, or the issue is 
under review.

If it will go to 4.5.27 (it's a priority bug) then the Target Version 
should be set to 4.5.27.

Just to be clear: the bugs list is meant for administration requests. If 
someone tested an issue and found it was a configuration issue, or an 
issue is a duplicate, but he/she doesn't have the right to close it then 
he/she can ask in this list. It's not meant to post information about 
the bug itself.
