This is nice to see.

IME, as a release manager/bug triager and as a member of package maintenance
teams, the distributions I want to be able to use for bug mails are:

- to the submitter and to the maintainer (most common)
- to the maintainer only

and IME as a sole maintainer of packages, the distributions I want are:

- to the submitter only
- "-quiet"

It would be great to see each of these mail distribution targets available
as a single destination address on bugs.d.o, and even better if the
reply-to's on bugs mail were set so that I never had to fiddle with headers
again when replying to bugs :)
