Wholeheartedly agreed. Now that the packages point to bug-hurd, we should
definitely use the bTS. This also ensures that the report does not get lost
in the Realm of Chaos. But I would like people to think a minute before
reporting unimplemented features, which would only clutter up the BTS and
make it hard to maintain the bug reports. OTOH, a bug report is easily
closed or downgraded to severity wishlist, so a bug report too much is
better then a bug report never send in.

Gordon, in /usr/doc/debian are guidelines how to use the BTS froma
maintainers point of view. Please make these available to the core hurd
developers, so they can do something about the reports. If you have
questions, you know how to reach me :)
