Have you tried popbugs, in the debian-goodies package?  It aims to show you

An approach like the above would produce an individualized list for each
developer, and the intersection of these lists would end up being something
like what you envision here.  So if everyone fixes bugs in packages they
use, the packages that they use don't get removed.
