Hi all,

how about a new function for the bts program of the devscripts package:

$ bts thankyou 123456

This could send a template message to 123456-sender@b.d.o, which would
say something like "The maintainer is too busy to send a real answer,
but he saw your report and thanks you for sending it."

(one can imaging many other variants, such as bts dontcare, bts
onstrike, bts waitayear, ....)

Have a nice day,
