I don't know either way, but I do know that bug-autoconf is just a regular 
mailing list, not connected to savannah issue tracking.  So Glenn's suggestion 
is probably the best for the short term.

This situation is exactly why I was thinking about switching autoconf over to 
debbugs: it's _useful_ for automake to be able to reassign bugs to autoconf and 
vice versa.  In fact, just last week I had to tell someone to re-file a bug 
against automake because we don't have the ability to reassign bugs in that 
direction.  (  However, I do not have 
time right now to wrangle the switch-over, and I also don't know how to get the 
existing set of open autoconf bugs migrated into debbugs.  (The closed bugs can 
stay where they are.)  Anyone reading this have time to tackle the work?
