Once the addres is known, I'll make it the address to which all bug
messages are sent; the headers that come out of debbugs are pretty
specific, so it'd be possible to lock down the incomming messages to
such an address pretty heavily too. [I can give you the procmail rules
we use for address@hidden if it helps, though
they're pretty basic.]

[Once we're past the initial testing phases, I assume we'll move the
bug tracking system to a machine somewhere at]
