Any idea if they have some common interchange format for their
bugs ? ... there looked like ideas about RDF export in the REST
interface of launchpad... but that was not operational last tieme I've
I'd be curious to see how such links between launchpad and debbugs would
be represented, then.

Oh, I forgot to mention, that we're more or less planing to work with
Mandriva people (who worked for that Nepomuk-related bug store
prototype) in Helios... so I hope we'll be able to provide more links
between Mandriva bugs and Debian bugs (and upstream bugs).
There would be some need for inter-distro work here, maybe... any ideas
on where to discuss that much welcome ;)
