Several points in my answer. First the « Package Tracking System » (yes,
that's its new name that Roland Mas suggested me) is not only to get BTS
mails but it will be extended to get dinstall mails and possibly other
mails (summary mails we could send from time to time to give some
figures abour the package's state). There's a mailable address that can
be used to contact the persons who are interested in the package and who
may help in case of problem. We wouldn't have anything like that if it
was directly integrated in the BTS (yes we could add that but it would not
be required for the "subscription service").

And last but not least, it would be way more complicated to integrate it
nicely in the BTS.

I asked doogie ages ago about a subscription service, and I guess you
can wait much more until it's done.

Anyway, "package subscription" and "bug subscription" is not the
same thing.

I have coordinated with Anthony Towns who co-{maintains,administers}
the BTS.
