Description

We could keep on adding patterns to the sanitizing regexp, that looks like an endless blacklist approach. However I fail to see how to take a white-list approach on this without killing the whole purpose of this additional information.

We should remove everything that follow the "serial", "sn" and "s/n" word, matching case insensitive. That would work for most issues that have been discovered yet, but would also remove some non-harming lines.
