If I was an ftpmaster or filed those bugs, yes... but since I'm not, I
won't be closing them.

1) There's nothing wrong with the messages that have been sent by
bts-link. Martin marked the bug as forwarded, so btslink marked the
bug as being an upstream bug which it appears to be since there's an
entry in upstream's BTS.

2) While I can do so, adding administrative prohibitions over
something which should be worked out between the GCC maintainers and
the btslink maintainers is not something that I'm going to do as an
initial step.

3) If the GCC maintainers don't want btslink modifying any non-user
tags for their packages, I'm fairly sure that the btslink maintainer
can implement that fairly simply; they should just communicate with
eachother instead of expecting the bts administrators to mediate for
them via administrative prohibitions.

What problems with the information in the BTS are you talking about?
