It needs to be understood in the context of the whole of the first

The body of the mail contains the commands to request@bugs.debian.org.
This is the important aspect; the process will not work without its
being done.

The subject of the mail has no importance and request@bugs.debian.org
will completely ignore it. So you can put anything in the subject line,
such as "Send for bugnumber" (or even leave it blank). The reply will
have "Re: Send for bugnumber". That might be useful to the sender.

IMO, the sentence could simply be rewritten to "The Subject of the
message is ignored." without loss of essential meaning.
