Summarized context (from #ubuntu-touch today):

<Ursinha> mhall119, hey :) how should one report bugs on click packages? I
believe ubuntu-bug doesn't work for them?
<mhall119> Ursinha: I believe you're right, beuno do you know of a way?
<Ursinha> I've been filing bugs against ubuntu-app-clock and I wasn't sure
how to proceed, as there's an ubuntu package but no published packages in
launchpad
<sergiusens> Ursinha, the strategy for clicks was to use the store
<Ursinha> sergiusens, on the phone? how do I do that?
<sergiusens> Ursinha, it's not implemented yet
<Ursinha> sergiusens, in the meantime, how's one supposed to file bugs?
<sergiusens> Ursinha,
http://summit.ubuntu.com/uds-1308/meeting/21840/community-1308-quality-reporting-bugs/
<mhall119> you have to manually file bugs still, not using ubuntu-bug

So, if a bug is on a click package: report it in LP upstream.

Do we all agree on that?
