Then replicate a small collection of them. It seems that you are using
testing on many computers. If you use testing you should be aware that
testing changes every day. If you can't accept this use stable instead,
which only changes once a year, more or less.

In either case, multiplying the number of files you have to customize
will not solve your underlying problem (i.e. that you have to
administer a lot of computers).

The way I read /usr/share/doc/debian/bug-maint-info.txt (from doc-debian),
only developers should send commands to the bug server.

[ In either case this is not documentation but common practice ].
