apt-listbugs list has been removed from the main package list.
However, I rely on apt-listbugs for pre-release testing on staging computers.

Has apt-listbugs been relocated/remoted from ubuntu, WHY?

The long term support servers I maintain are running Debian. I really
enjoy the fact that stable and testing are repository links to
whatever. It literally means setup once, and forget about it. Locked
away unacceptable  servers always upgrade correctly once they see the
light of day again.
