I'm CC'ing the list again, because I think this is worthwhile to
everyone (and to the archives, so we can give people a link)

You email your report in like anything else, and assign it the
severity that matches --

Wishlist for NEW packages
Normal for regular sponsored uploads
Important for RC-critical stuff

(someone correct me if this is wrong)

After that, a sponsor can pick up the ticket and manage it through the
BTS, rather then having to use mentors.debian.net - it's a lot easier
to keep track of what's been uploaded then looking at our mail
archives, since some sponsors will take reviews off-list, and upload
without CC'ing the original mail.

This way a sponsor can close the bug when it's been uploaded (or
perhaps a mentor bot eventually)
