I guess I have just illustrated my incomplete mental model of
the BTS, then.

Sounds good.

So there is no need to create a "wishlist package" in the BTS?  That's
what I thought Jordi was implying when he said :

Doesn't this imply the existence of a "foobar-wishlist" package in the

I guess the problem that I thought remained unsolved isn't a problem.  I
thought the BTS wouldn't notify the developer who announced his ITP.  But
of course, if his email is attached to the wishlist in the BTS, he'll
automatically be copied on any additional info added to the wishlist bug,
won't he?
