Thanks for this reminder. Maybe we can codify that somewhere in the
wiki. Also the use of submittodebian (ubuntu-dev-tools package) should

If you want your specific concerns about future feature implementation
to be answered or addressed, why don't you choose a forum where
Launchpad developers can answer the question?
All open systems have the problem that they could be tampered with. As
somebody who did a lot of Desktop bug triage, I know that a lot of
people will see simple-bug-forwarding as beneficial.
A few things TTBOMK:
- the upstream bug tracker people will need to opt in
- the use of the "forward now" button will not be accessible in the UI
to everybody by default
Have a nice day,
