the discussion about where nnnnnn at b.d.o should be delivered to (the
submitted in automatic, all that contributed to the bug, as is) has
been going on for years. For example: how can you be certain that the
submitter actually cares about the discussion of the bug and it was
not just a "report and forget" (feel free to search d-devel archives
for this very same argument).

it sounds like it should be addressed in the BTS itself than reportbug
