I'm really sorry for that. This is my second mail to debian-devel, and
seems like both were failed :(

I failed to understand bugs.debian.org site.

My process was:

1. Search my bugs in b.d.o though
2. Send email with submitter instruction to control@b.d.o
3. Check my 66 errors, I should unarchive first, then change
submitter, and then archive
4. Send email with unarchive / submitter / archive instructions (same
search but with archive=archived) (checking the number of bugs to

Then I read this message, and I can see I changed many bug submitter
from other bugs that were merged with my bugs reports.

I don't know where I failed, I read in bugs.debian.org about submitted
won't changed merged bugs:
submitter bugnumber  originator-address | !

    Changes the originator of #bugnumber to originator-address.

    If you wish to become the new originator of the report you can use
the ! shorthand or specify your own email address.

    While the reopen command changes the originator of other bugs
merged with the one being reopened, submitter does not affect merged

And archive and unarchive commands reference does not talk about merged bugs

I think is a good idea to change your mail submitter from all bugs
(archived and unarchived), because people could find these bugs and
then contact with submitter.

So, why are these bugs changing their submitters ?

Where I failed ?

Thanks and sorry again if I did any wrong thing

Debian Rocks!
