Do you take into account that cupsys was renamed to cups in the Intrepid 
release cycle? This means the figures of "cupsys" and "cups" bugs have 
to get summed up. For triagers it menas that everything which is still 
valid in Intrepid needs to be moved to "cups".

In addition. triagers should know that the printing subsystem consists 
of many packages, not only cups, but also ghostscript, foomatic-*, 
hplip, gutenprint, splix, system-config-printer, ... Users do not know 
that and assign printing-related bug reports to cups/cupsys or 
system-config-printer in most cases. Triagers should move these to the 
correct packages.
