Ah, I hoped that debbugs would be so clever and treat messages with
References header differently.

BTW, what's now with the gmane.emacs.auctex.bugs newsgroup gateway to
the bug-auctex mailing list?  Should we request that it is made
read-only (as a kind of archive) or deleted altogether?  And the same
question applies to the bug-auctex list itself.  Does that still receive
bugs reported with `TeX-submit-bug-report', i.e., mails sent to

Yeah, we made it from 300 warnings down to 270.  That can easily be
considered as "fixed". ;-)

Fun aside: I'd suggest to just let it there.  Maybe it'll motivate
someone to squash some other warnings.

Yes, but we should try to keep that transition phase short.  For
example, if the bug-auctex list is basically offline now, we could
inform all its subscribers of the switch to debbugs.
