nnn-submitter@bugs.debian.org is archived in the BTS
(http://b.d.o/nnn) *and* forwarded to the submitter but _not_ forwarded
to the maintainer. Iirc it sets
Reply-To: <yoursenderaddress>, nnn-quiet@bdo
in the forwared mail, so the submitter's answer will not reach the
maintainer either, as it is sent to -quiet.

Iirc the bts is now smart enough to not show a mail sent

To: nnn-submitter@bugs.debian.org,nnn@bugs.debian.org

twice on http://b.d.o/nnn.
