You seem to have actually missed the second sentence, "A change might be
a bug in upstream, or in the debianisation, or in Debian for requiring

nyway, I assume that people read the entirety of what I write before

You're not convinced that divergences could be sorted out of the way in
the bug display? Is there something in the BTS code that makes you think
that cannot be done?

You still seem to be missing things that I wrote in my first mail. In
particular, bugs can be forwarded upstream.
