Carrying on from the MOTU packaging request policy email from a few days 
ago. If you see any of these bugs could you triage them as below?

One small remark to bug triagers: If you spot request for packages which
are already requested for (or evel already in) Debian, please locate the
ITP bug on http://debian.org/devel/wnpp and link the malone report to
that bug.

This has several advantages:

  - we notice when the package enters Debian and we can subscribe the
    archive team for syncing the source.

  - prospective packagers for ubuntu notice that there is already someone
    on the debian side working on the package. Contacting them might be a
    good idea to avoid work duplication.

  - There might be licence discussion about the package on the debian
    side. Linking those bugs might save time for license research.
