That is only correct for use a remote bug tracker. It doesn't make sense
to me to have an *upstream* bug tracker in Launchpad if the *real*
upstream has a different bug tracker.

even for one I don't think it's Ok. Not because of the work, but why
should we have an upstream bug tracker if we aren't upstream?
