I'd love to see the package maintainer to decide whether a bug is a bug or not.

This is nice of you but I do not really want to spend our users time for
fixing problems of lazy maintainers.

We do not talk about *every* mail but only <bug-nr>-done mails.

Well, the BTS has more useful applications than closing bugs and thus you
are free to do a plenty of stuff with it. You could even close those bugs

You mal was not really harsh and I just introduced my first mail with
this sentence because a short browsing of the history gave no hint on
signed close-procedure which seams to be reasonable to me. If I would
have overlooked a similiar suggestion I would have tried to use my
sentence as excuse. ;-)
