I saw this, but this just lists all karmic bugs, although it's easy 
enough to search on a package name.  This raises the question of how 
bugs appear in this list; i.e. does one file the bug against karmic or 
against the package, and if the latter, will it automatically appear in 
the karmic list if it's a karmic package?  Based on sifting through the 
dovecot/postfix bug lists, it appears not.

When I go to report a bug, I'm asked to list the package the bug is in 
(if known) but not what distribution I am using.  Since almost everyone 
is using a particular distribution/version, it seems that it would be 
useful to also ask what distribution the bug reporter is using; that way 
bugs filed against packages would also appear as problems in that
