Here's what we discussed in IRC, and I think it should work:

<kiko> a) Ask mdz or another ubuntu owner for permission to restructure
bug contacts for ubuntu.
<kiko> b) create a new team called ubuntu-bugs
<kiko> c) add the existing bug team to be a member of this new team
<kiko> d) create a new team called ubuntu-universe-bugs
<kiko> e) set its contact email address to the ML you want
<dholbach> the problem is being bug contact for 16000 source packages :)
<kiko> f) add ubuntu-universe-bugs to ubuntu-bugs
<kiko> g) change list configuration to drop bugmail for main.
<kiko> that's it!
<bradb> dholbach: i think kiko's idea will work, actually. you'll still
be screwed when it comes to package bug reports, but then, the ubuntu
bug contact doesn't work properly for that either
<kiko> of course it will work!!!11
<bradb> heh
<dholbach> Ok
<dholbach> thanks - I'll see what I can do
