I think the distinction between upstream and distro is a useful one, and
I'd be sad if we started treating them as one and the same (or created a
blanket rule about where bugs should be reported, which is effectively the
same thing, in my mind).

I also believe that the correct place for almost all bugs to be filed is
against the upstream projects itself (at least, for the core
Canonical/Ubuntu projects - I assume we're having this conversation in the
context of canonical-sponsored Ubuntu Touch projects).

I suspect one of the issues is that it's easy to miss bugs filed against
the Ubuntu package only. Is there an easy tweak we can make to launchpad so
these bugs are more visible? Or perhaps there's already a way, but I just
don't know about it?
