Depends on the problem.  For the types of problems I tend to report, I'm not 
sure [debian-user] would be appropriate -- and that mailing list is noisy even 
compared to [debian-devel].

One of the packages where the bug was merged and closed without any maintainer 
discussion was an external kernel module, which built correctly on one vanilla 
stable Linux kernel version, but failed to build on a newer stable version 
unless a kernel feature was enabled that the hardware doesn't support.

I've been tempted to email -devel about this since Russ's suggestion, but I've 
decided I'd rather put that off until after Wheezy is released because this 
bug is likely not RC.
