   That happens only for closed bugs.

Really?  Earlier today, 15344 was not "closed" AFAICT but anyway, i had
to "unarchive" it to be able to continue its thread (via bug-gnu-emacs).
(A previous mail went to /dev/null.)

Perhaps this is a PEBKAC situation -- i wouldn't be surprised...

If a bug is "important", i think it should be visible longer on the
default "browse" link, reproduced here:


(from <http://debbugs.gnu.org/Emacs.html>).  I understand that this is
just a question of presentation; i need to play w/ the form...

Hmm, after playing a bit, i think the timeout value has nothing to do w/
whether or not the bug shows up on the default page, but rather the
‘max-bugs’ parameter, plus the particular mix of current bugs...

OK, never mind.  Sorry for the misplaced angst.

   You could always access the archived bugs as well: [debbugs-gnu]

Cool.  I like debbugs-org, too.
