In the last few days we have tried to get the bugzilla mails for 
nobody@skolelinux.no to get throug to the debian-edu@lists.debian.org list.  
(Thank you Vidar for your help in this matter.)

This worked for a couple of months in 2004, and I found this old mailing about 
the issue in the mail archive. No solution was found then, and after a mail 
discussion with the listmaster at Debian, (for the past week) they wont allow 
us to send the mails as we used to, without a _realy_ good reason. 

Vidar suggests that the best solution is to change the mailaddress of nobody 
in th bugzilla, to point to the debian-edu list. Then we have a solution not 
depending on a exception rule from the listmasters, that they might change 
every now and then. 

I see the benefit of this solution, but I'm not sure how it will effect the 
configuration in our bugzilla. 

I'll try to change every instances of the nobody's mailadress to the 
debian-edu list, if non of you people come up with a better solution in a day 
or two. Any one have any objection to this, please step up.

AFAIK the mails from the bugzilla can be filtered by three things, 
1.) The title always starts with [Bug xxx],
2.) They are all from bugzilla-skolelinux@developer.skolelinux.no
3.) There is a X-Bugzilla-Reason mail header that tells you your relationship 
to the bug in queston. The values of this header can be: Owner, Reporter, 
QAcontact, CClist, Voter or WatchingComponent
