Depends on the complexity of me actually getting the information to
the bts,[0] but assuming that there's:

1) a clear consensus on the methodology to make/update the links[1]

2) a tab-delineated text file generated somewhere[2] with the source
package name in the first field, the link to the upstream bts in the
second, and the wiki page on wiki.debian.org for additional bug
reporting/triage information in the third

3) enough source packages implementing #1 for me to actually test it;
I imagine if we get at least a half dozen packages from different
maintainers it'll be enough to demonstrate that it's workable.

then I'll shove it into my queue to implement.

0: the more complexity, the longer it'll take; the actual code change
to debbugs is relatively trivial.

1: probably a good idea to also have a draft for inclusion in

2: where this is depends on the method, but probably ftpmaster is the
ideal place; dunno, though.

Some pirates achieved immortality by great deeds of cruelty or
derring-do. Some achieved immortality by amassing great wealth. But
the captain had long ago decided that he would, on the whole, prefer
to achieve immortality by not dying.
