Imported Bug Comments

Launchpad has had the ability to display bug comments from upstream bug
trackers for some time now but it only works with some upstreams.  I
thought it would be helpful to have a list of the Ubuntu packages in
Launchpad that are displaying bug comments from upstream bug trackers so
we can focus on forwarding these package's bugs upstream and adding the
bug watches.

If you'd like an example of what I am talking about see
http://launchpad.net/bugs/624386.  Here we can see a wine1.2 (Ubuntu)
bug task linked to an upstream Wine bug report and the comments from the
upstream bug tracker appearing in-line.

So if we were to make a list of packages it'd include:

wine1.2
wine
thunderbird
firefox

What else?

I am asking as this is rather hard to determine from Launchpad itself -
at least as far as I can tell.  You can find bug mail about imported
comments by looking for mail from "Bug Watch Updater" and with the body
"Launchpad has imported" some number "comments from the remote bug".
When I was filtering "Launchpad has imported" returned no false
positives.

I think posting to the list is a good way to build an initial list, as
it'll help people learn about the packages, and then we can make a wiki
page with them.

Thanks!
