My opinion is that there is no need for a Bugzilla AND a list for 
unsupported package discussion.
For discussion of every Ubuntu related stuff there is ubuntu-users.
An unsupported or only by community supported Bugzilla will become an
error reporting station where bug count grow and grow without real
control if there is really a bug.
So the relation between bug solution and bug reporting will be very
small, I think.
Why we don't use ubuntu-users for discussion and reporting and a new
wiki topic with related subtopics for publishing solutions and patches?
In my opinion there is everything we need to work on unsupported
