While I can see the necessity of having more than one person (i.e., the
MOTU who proposed/acked the SRU) to stay as the bug contact, I agree
that MOTU-SRU team will be busy enough with the approving work.
Therefore I think requiring them to be the bug contact of all the
packages they approved hurts more than helps, especially that, as far as
I understand, currently there is no way in malone to specify which
version/release the bug is about.

I have another idea -- what about forming another team to act as
MOTU-SRU bug triagers?  This team should be (automatically?) set as bug
contact for all SRUed packages, and look at the bug reports, then
contact MOTU-SRU team and the MOTU who did the upload if they think the
bug is caused by the update.

I care about stable updates a lot, and while I am not confident to be in
the MOTU-SRU team, I would be happy to be in such a bug triaging team
and help what I can.  Anybody with me?
