Thanks for the information, I thought it was obsoleted when the closing of bugs
Can you describe somewhere what the BTS is doing on that matter ? I do not
understand the rationale and the function. Also, I thought that
changelog-driven interaction with the BTS was only carried through
dpkg-genchanges and dak... Can missing acknowledgements be corrected via the
email interface ? Are there other direct interactions between a package and
the BTS with its changelog ?
