  that's your work to do. bts-link only follows remote bugs status
change. I've no way to know the bug has been reopened because it's a
problem of another branch. If that's the case, the "right" way to do it
is either to reassign the bug, or to clone/close it.

  I use the fact that the debian bug is about gcc-4.1 because it's
*ASSIGNED* to gcc-4.1 in the BTS. if that is not accurate, then fix it.

  I will soon write a web page on http://bts-link.alioth.debian.org/ to
explain what bts-link does and does not. it *do not* triages bugs for
you, it only *synchronize* remote bugs status into the BTS. assigning
bugs to the right package, ensuring that the bug is *really* fixed like
upstream claims it is, ... remains of the responsability of the
maintainer. No automated tool can be trusted for such tasks.

  and again, the bts-link usertags are used as a database of the current
remote states.


  so a correct summary is that: bts-link sent a status change for a gcc
bug that apply to gcc-snapshot to gcc-4.1@packages.debian.org instead,
because the debian bug linked to the previous is assigned to gcc-4.1. If
that's correct, then well, sorry, bts-link sadly cannot replace
maintainers. I suppose that what you want is:

  $> bts assign 356569 gcc-snapshot
