Bug#320210: debbugs: Please add possibility to add a non-numerical prefix to bug numbers

Package: debbugs
Version: 2.4.1
Severity: wishlist

Hash: SHA1

It would be nice, if /var/lib/debbugs/spool/nextnumber would accept and
understand a construction based on a prefix + a number, e.g. foobar11,
so different BTS can use their own prefix. E.g. BTS1 uses bug-reprort
numbers '#btsaxxxxxx' and BTS2 uses '#btsbxxxxxx'. So this would help to
make it clear, which bug is meant. So bug-numbers are not always #xxxxxx,
even if they are mentioned in different BTS. Adding a prefix would also
help to keep track of the origin of a bug-report.

Regards, Daniel
