Also consider forwarding bugs to upstream, etc. They may not
understand our BTS system, or how to access the full details of the

I often mention the URL by entering it manually, but this is
potentially error prone (one day I suspect I will end up accidently
cutting & pasting either the wrong bug id, or
<URL:http://bugs.debian.org.au/123456> or
<URL:http://bugs.debian.org/#123456>; all of these are wrong).

The downside though is that this would require the BTS software to
edit the email message, deal correctly with MIME attachments, etc. I
think mailing list software does this correctly though(?), so it
should be possible.

Another option would be to add-yet-another-cool-macro to
Gnus/the-kitchen-sink... errr.. I mean Gnus/emacs... that somehow does
the task automatically if
but I don't have the time or patience to learn that
awful-programming-language-that-requires-lots-of-nested-brackets... errr... I
mean LISP... right now. ;-)

However, this won't work anyway for people stuck using lesser MUAs
(e.g. mutt), fake MUAs (e.g. evolution), or worse (e.g. anything
written by or for Microsoft).
