Bug#922715: debbugs: b.d.o/release-critical/britney/testing-nr wrongly reports RC bugs when reported against two packages

Package: debbugs
Version: 2.6.0
Severity: normal
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-release@lists.debian.org

Hi Don,

You may have noticed that I file a lot of bugs nowadays against two
source packages due to autopkgtest failures in testing with one or more
packages from unstable. Typically, I file them against the package that
fails at the version in testing, while the package that breaks the test,
will have it filed against the version in unstable. Yesterday, I raised
the severity on several of them to serious. An example is bug 918632,
which is filed against:
simplejson/3.16.0-1 (in unstable)
json-schema-validator/2.3.1-3 (in unstable and testing)

Britney is using RC bugs to determine if package may migrate from
unstable to testing. If an RC bug is only in unstable and not in
testing, the package is not allowed to migrate. However, in the above
case simplejson is listed in both

Can you please have a look at it? I wanted to mark the failure as
skiptest, because I expect the bug to be assigned to
json-schema-validator in 10 days from now, and was counting on the RC
bug to block simplejson from migrating.
