I now also see spamming unrelated bugs issue too. That's fine.

Re:message no, the tags are not enough, as there also need to be tasks open
against the right packages. Often the same bug link is used for multiple
kernel flavours affecting different series and fixed at different uploads
so one needs to know package name + version + series.

You can see the current sru template verification text in
which is more polite and contains more substituted variables with direct
information and links as to what needs testing. I believe it is generated
by the sru-accept script from the ubuntu-archive-tools and is posted upon
publication in the proposed pocket.

There are many ways to drive those scripts, so a full message is generated
when sourcepackage name is passed to it.


I am not sure where the kernel sru messages are generated, is it done with
the sru_workflow tooling using the latest args / messages?
