The purposes of needs packaging bugs are to give people a way to request
things get packaged, to give packagers an idea what people would like to
see, and to make work in progress visible to avoid duplication.
It would be a shame to not upload a package due to lack of filling out some
form. Needs packaging bus are a good idea, but to block anything due to
lack of one puts form over function. Please leave this one out.
