been ~6 years or so since I last looked at debbugs code :(), but
nevertheless, debbugs is an interesting tool.
And I need to get my hands dirty with something else than packaging if I
want to earn back my DD status at some point. Debbugs hackage sounds
like a good opportunity! (Plus, it's perl. I like perl.)

Due to me being out of available holidays, it's very unlikely I'd be
able to attend an in person sprint, unless it's during DebConf, or if it
is held in Hungary. So here goes a shout for an IRC-backed hacking
