You don't maintain a package with many open bugreports, lucky you, if
you believe it "already happened" to _one_ bug...

Especially given that the bug[1] was against a package with a list of
maintainers - I am rather astonished that it wasn't reopened multiple

If a package maintainer doesn't notice that the status (closing, tags,
upstream, whatever) of his or her bugs has been changed by spam, he/she
should really consider orphaning the package.
