Depends on the complexity of me actually getting the information to
the bts, but assuming that there's:
1) a clear consensus on the methodology to make/update the links
2) a tab-delineated text file generated somewhere 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.
