$ w3m -dump -cols 72 http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting | grep -2 maintonly | head
If a bug report is minor, for example, a documentation typo or a
trivial build problem, please adjust the severity appropriately and
send it to maintonly@bugs instead of submit@bugs. maintonly will
forward the report to the package maintainer only, it won't forward it
to the BTS mailing lists.
If you're submitting many reports at once, you should definitely use
maintonly@bugs so that you don't cause too much redundant traffic on
the BTS mailing lists. Before submitting many similar bugs you may also
want to post a summary on debian-bugs-dist.
(The "post a summary" bit may be out of date; can ordinary users post to
-bugs-dist these days?)
