Yes, that's what I meant by "bug-contact" (old name).

That's a nice option.

We have upstream devs subscribed to for instance gthumb and it is
fantastic. Increasingly we see more upstream devs register on
launchpad and participate in particular bugs, which is highly
appreciated. Makes sense also, since in many cases the biggest part of
their software's consumers are using it on Ubuntu... Other devs (no
names) seem allergic to non-developer contact :) Let's say they just
don't have time, which is ok.
