No, this has never been the case. The maintainer gets the bug reports
from the BTS directly and the PTS is useful for people who are not the
maintainer but which do want to receive all the information that
the maintainer usually receives.

Furthermore, the PTS has a very fine-grained mechanism to select which
messages one wants to receive. Thus you can always work around any problem
by enabling or disabling a specific keyword on a specific subscription.
