We already have `gnus-read-ephemeral-bug-group' for reading specific
bugs.  IMHO, what we need next is to adopt Peter S. Galbraith's
(Cc-ed) Debian Emacs package (debian-bug.el?) to Emacs' debbugs so
that we can do most of the things described in admin/notes/bugtracker
(tagging, closing, ...)  from Emacs (message-mode).

Bye, Reiner.
