In what way?

This is an example of a message which would have normally just been
sent to bug-gnu-emacs anyway. Think of address@hidden
as just an alias for bug-gnu-emacs in the case where nnn is a bug is
in the emacs package.

If the messages don't go through the bug tracker before they hit
bug-gnu-emacs, you'd have no clue what bug is being discussed, nor
where to look to see the followup information, and you additionally
have to be subscribed to some other mailing list to get any
information about the bug at all.

We can easily stop sending all messages to bug-gnu-emacs if we want
to, but then no messages would go to bug-gnu-emacs at all, not even
the ones that were originally sent there.

From what I see, the primary issue is one of the bugs not being
threaded properly, which Stefan already raised with me, and is
