Mmm, well, what if I sent just one bug against ftp.debian.org saying
"these 100 packages should not have `optional' priority but `extra'"?
I would say your proposed policy is incomplete. I would add the following
"Bugs against ftp.debian.org count for as many bugs as the packages it
refers to. Therefore nobody should submit bug reports against
ftp.debian.org if such report refers to five packages or more"
If you agree, could you please close Bug#19920 and discuss guidelines
about package priorities *first*?
