I didn't. Just change the content of this mail into one of the pages of your
site, and you're set.

So, you got the way to go. Please go ahead and submit those 6229 bugs.
Providing a patch *is* an alternative method. We did the same sort of
wishlish bug mass filling with the transition from raw debconf to
po-debconf. We had less packages to bug, though.

It represents an insane amount of work, but it's the way to go, I guess.
What's useless is to fill the bug without the patches, but if you write the
watch file for the people, nobody should complain.

Good luck, Mt.
