make lp-affects able to add non-release specific tasks

Bug #1807112 reported by Christian Ehrhardt  on 2018-12-06

Bug Description

currently lp-affects requires all three arguments
  usage: lp-affects-devel [-h] bug package release

But when you add a task on LP quite often you want to just add the package, but not for a given release (e.g. when tracking tasks for the next devel release).

This works fine if we construct the target string slightly different.
We can just make release optional (as in the LP UI) and add it as that if not specified.
