BTS usertags for Alpha specific bugs


I scanned the BTS for Alpha specific bugs (by looking for those
reported on an Alpha machine, or with "alpha" in the subject). I'm
planning to use usertags with user debian-alpha@lists.debian.org to
record this. I would use the following tags:

broken    unusable on Alpha
buggy     buggy on Alpha
maybe     might be Alpha specific, but this has not been verified
          (might be just a generic 64-bit bug). Somebody with an AMD64
          should check these
hardware  This requires particular hardware to be reproduced.

I'm not tagging FTBFS, because they can be better tracked at
http://buildd.debian.org/~jeroen/status/architecture.php?a=alpha, and
also not bugs for Alpha-specific packages like aboot.

I'd be interested in feedback... here's the list:
