Ah, your mail to debian.org address is not forwarded all to another
address? If so, I don't know how to handle it. Can you filter your mail on
debian machine?

I think it's better to have the same address for all the packages you
maintain. I don't know. Surely in that case you should have mail on a
machine you cna filter on.

I think it's your duty to forward interesting report to him. I can't
understand a reason to forward all the bugs against it, as Adrian says.
Maybe you could say to upstream author that he can read all bugs against
his package using http://bugs.debian.org/packagename.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for.
