Mmm, requiring a lot of action for a lot of packages has not to be
discussed also? This is also a problem, not only getting rid of the bug
themselves, because people may disagree very easily.
I don't think submitting a lot of bugs or submitting a bug affecting a
lot of packages are so different things.
I thought we were trying to "Discuss first, submit bugs later".
This should be valid for your bug also.
