You'll be pleased to know this has just been implemented, and should
appear on in a few weeks. <>

- From reading hugdaylist, it filters the bug list in two ways:

*   It excludes "Fix Released" bugs. Launchpad's advanced search can do
    this already: select all the statuses except for "Fix Released".

*   It excludes bugs that have either ubuntu-main-sponsors or
    ubuntu-universe-sponsors as a subscriber. I've reported a bug for
    making this possible in Launchpad.

Launchpad could do this using a custom batch size -- except that as soon
as a bug was marked Fix Released it would disappear from the list, only
to be replaced by the next. :-)

I wonder if it would make sense to track those package updates as bug
reports too, so that the people doing them could see them in the same
list as any other bugs assigned to them.
