That's fine. The only reason i feel that way is that i don't want
to put a burden on volunteers. In addition to our individual
membership in the Debian community (except me, been stuck in NM
for over 6 months now), we want Progeny to be a well-behaved
member also. The last thing we want to do is horde.

If Debian decides that bug reports should go to Debian unless
we've modified the package, that's what we'll do.

I agree.
