even if upstream is interested in bug reports (may be even in all of
them) - it is not that easy to figure out how to subscribe to the bug
mails of a package. We should make it easier for upstreams to subscribe
to bts mails. May be also implement a weekly summary of bug mails
instead of spamming every single bug mail.

Just my 2c :)
