(K)Ubuntu is a do-acracy.  The only one doing any substantial bug triage right 
now that I'm aware of is Jonathon Thomas.  My vote is he gets to decide.

BTW, Dr. Konqi knows where to send Quassel bug reports upstream.  If it didn't 
know where KEuroCalc bugs should go, I think that's a KEuroCalc bug.
