7.1.1. Reporting lots of bugs at once
Reporting a great number of bugs for the same problem on a great
number of different packages --- i.e., more than 10 --- is a
deprecated practice. Take all possible steps to avoid submitting bulk
bugs at all. For instance, if checking for the problem can be
automated, add a new check to intian' so that an error or warning is
If you report more than 10 bugs on the same topic at once, it is
recommended that you send a message to <email@example.com>
describing your intention before submitting the report. This will
allow other developers to verify that the bug is a real problem. In
addition, it will help prevent a situation in which several
maintainers start filing the same bug report simultaneously.
Note that when sending lots of bugs on the same subject, you should
send the bug report to <firstname.lastname@example.org> so that the bug
report is not forwarded to the bug distribution mailing list.
