While I don't know the answer to that, but do know that all the
launchpad ones were packaged
$ dpkg -L firefox-launchpad-plugin
Something similar (IMHO) should be done for Debian. Atleast three
search engines I do use of Debian from the mozdev site.
1. Debian packages
2. Debian bugs - by number
3. Debian bugs - by name
As an occasional reporter/syncer and triager this proves useful. If
these three are packaged in the repository it would be better.
There is always the possibility of using some more stuff that people
know/would like to query the Debian system.
Looking forward to comments, suggestions, improvements on the same.
