Since we're not doing any other analysis of installation reports right
now, and most of the one bug install reports tend to be shy on other
details anyway, I guess it's easier to simply reassign them.

Probably doesn't matter much if the package is part of d-i. For stuff
outside d-i yes, I always get better results when I mail the maintainer
as well.

Ugh. I'm not sure they all have bugs, I hope people can add bug numbers
if they're aware of any.

Not AFAIK at the moment, aside from debian-bugs-dist@lists.debian.org
and procmail. I try to arrange for the submitter to mail replys to me,
instead of the bug.
