Do we want a test step to see how it looks on some desktops?

Well normally I prefer to have them tracked in both places. Then if
Debian are slow to implement, it could be done in Ubuntu. In that case
the Debian maintainer will have a bug, and an Ubuntu diff show up on the
Package Tracker. It is reasonably easy to forward launchpad bugs to
Debian. But you are probably right if there will be many.

Will the wiki automatically strike-through when bugs are closed so we
don't have to manually check? Is that possible for Launchpad bugs?

Good idea. It won't cover all the packages, but most of them.
