If I thought it was an issue more or less unrelated to the status as
experimental or if it was related to one of the non-experimental
packages. Otherwise, I would tend to go to debbugs or the DD ML
(or possibly upstream).

Really though, thanks to apt-listbugs, I have had few problems,
and most of those I just wait through, work around with info already
available, or downgrade.
