One of the top issues we discussed at last week's Launchpad planning
sprint was how to do better forwarding of bugs upstream. This covered a
number of areas:

    - Simplified upstream bug filing, using the user's own credentials,
      to both Bugzilla and debbugs

    - Comment synchronizing and remote comment display

    - Attachment synchronizing

    - Other options for credentials for upstream bug filing, using
      authentication plugins, special forwarder accounts and more.

    - Forwarding of bugs to email addresses (for the
      upstream-is-a-mailing-list use case)

These are all improvements scheduled for the next six months in
Launchpad; ask me for specifics in two week's tim and I'll be able to
give you target milestones for them.
