And that brings up an issue specific to current or former Debian
packages; handleing any bugs on a package in the Debian BTS... For

But what about closed ones? The package I've started on
(Fidogate) had 9 bugs against it; 8 of them closed by it being
"removed from the Debian archive". If they were still open, then
most if not all would be closable by the new package I'll be working
on. Re-open them so the can be properly closed if/when the package is
back in the archive? Set them as version specific? Update the close
