An other one could be to check the From address when something is received
at an address that could modify the state of a bug as follows:
- If it's a @debian.org address or the maintainer of the package this bug
is for, accept
- If this mail is not the first to this bug from this address, but it
sent the first time to this bug less than a certain amount of time
- If a mail has been sent to this particular bug from this particular
address before, accept
- Everything else: drop.
That would filter out most, I think, while not being too inconvenient to
people doing what they need to do or users filing bugs and submitting more
information. After all, unmangling emailaddresses is not impossible...
