When the maintainer think the bug reporter is not to be annoyed, then he
should mail nnn-silent or whatever, because that is the exception.

Not the reverse. This is a major (if not _THE_ major) annoyance with the
BTS. FWIW this is a long discussed issue, and the BTS maintainers do not
share this opinion (that mailing nnnn@ should also mail the submitter)
so we're basically stuck.
