Yes. But in order to be available for the archive manager, a package
must be deployed first (making a tar-ball). This is not done
automatically; for packages with very recent changes (like debbugs
today), you won't get the latest version by the package manager.

The description is not up-to-date. There is debbugs.el, which is a
generic debbugs SOAP interface, indeed. And there is debbugs-gnu.el,
which offers a UI accessing debbugs.gnu.org, for example for Emacs bugs.
