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
checked :(

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 ;)
