As Steve already stated, it might put some extra load on those people.
Beside that I think that they wouldn't care at all about those bugs - as
they do right now about answering emails to let the maintainers know what's
happening (or not).
Anyway, I think that it would be a good idea to have somewhere a place where
people can check whether a problem with the buildds is already reported or
not. But I guess a simple archive on the web should do this as well. No need
for a BTS...

Shouldn't that be the case with the DAM, ftp-masters, etc. as well?
Ooops, wasn't there last year a big flamew^Wthread about some peoples
