        Well, I do read those lists. But if you see concrete problems
 with Debian packages, or things you wish to be in the Debian ref
 policy, please do continue to file bugs with the BTS; there is less
 chance that anything will be overlooked that way.

        Absolutely. I think there used to be a usertag, with the user
 set to the alioth dev mailing list, that we used to tag bugs with
 selinux patches with so they could be followed. Perhaps it is time to
 resurect that practice.

        Perhaps a wish list bug is in order?
