No, the maintainer(s) should do that. That is not a submitter's responsibility. >> It's _not_ OK to tell the users of your packages to only file them >> upstream. > > This is ludicrous.

There's plenty advantage for a submitter to *always* use the Debian BTS to report bugs, namely because, as a Debian user, I don't give a rats ass when upstream fixes a bug; I'm only interested in when that fix is released in a Debian package. -- I'm sick of being the guy who eats insects and gets the funny syphilis.
