#205163 and #378102 are both archived (and therefore by definition also
closed). Modifications to archived bugs aren't possible, so debbugs
won't accept mail for them.

[#205163 was closed in October 2003 so would have been archived some
time in November 2003. #378102 was closed in July 2006 whilst archiving
was disabled and finally archived on June 17th this year.]

FWIW, I'm guessing the two bug numbers may have been typos as #378102 is
a mysql security bug and #205163 a translation for gnapster whereas your
closure message refers to gcc.
