The BTS in Alioth is enabled or disabled on a per-project basis, at
the discretion of the project admin(s). If your project is a package,
you'll probably want to disable it. If it's a project "whose goal is
to promote Debian or one of its derivatives", then you may need/want
it. What was the motto of X again? Something about "providing tools,
not policies"? I feel the same about Alioth.
