I had take a look at the debbugs source code right now, and now I
undestand why this bug is untouched for 3 years.
Debbugs needs a rewrite from scratch, maybe using some modern
technologies like, hmmm, relational databases.
I think that can be done, as debbugs has so few features (comparing to
another BTS around). But it's even harder to know the exact API that
debbugs implements today, should a re-implementation cares just about
what is described in the documentation at bugs.debian.org?
P.S.: I'm not saying I am starting to rewrite it, but I'm considering...
