Standard BTS/mailing list warning follows:

    *NEVER* *EVER* crosspost directly between submit@bugs.debian.org
    and mailing lists!

Doing this means that mailing list subscribers who just do a "wide
reply" to the posting will send their reply to sumbit@bugs.debian.org,
thereby opening a *new* unrelated bug. That is Bad.

Others who feel inclined to respond to Zephaniah, please take note!

The Right way to do this is described in the Bug Tracking System
|   The right way to do this is to use the X-Debbugs-CC header. Add a line
|   like this to your message's mail header (not to the pseudo header with
|   the Package field):
|      X-Debbugs-CC: other-list@cosmic.edu

Doing it the Right way also means that the copy that gets sent to the
mailing list will have the bug tracking number in the header, making
the following discussion on the mailing list easily archived in the BTS.

                   all I meant was that he likes to have a bang everywhere."
