Uh... they aren't? [At least, they aren't being sent by the bug

The bug tracker does not currently send any messages on to
emacs-devel, so this list only gets a single copy. [You *can* ask it
to send mail to -devel, but it does not do so by default.]

They should go to the list so that you know what is being done with
the bugs and can contravene if necessary.

Moving it to whatever machine is decided will basically need
coordination between me and whomever is administering that machine
along with the go-ahead to make it official. [Ideally I'd have a login
too, along with a debbugs user, but we can work that out.]
