I'm reopening the bug: the idea of this task is to clean up
useless things, not to interfere with someone else job. ;)

Now, just a couple of random thoughts about it.

@ m68k porters: I noted that s390x porters use a specific usertag
to group all bugs related to their port [1]: do you already do that?
It probably can help in searching/tracking bugs specific for you port.
(Sorry if I'm saying something obvious, as said: I'm not into ports,
so I don't really know how are managed, but I'd like to be of help 
in this BTS-problem)
@ debbugs people: Is there any chance to include in the BTS also
not-released ports? I mean, I know they technically are not Debian, but
also non-free is not Debian and it is in the BTS ;)
Are there reasons to avoid it, or is it technically possible to track also
packages in debian-ports.org?

Thanks in advance,
