Hmm. On "Thu, 10 Oct 2013 17:19:04 -0400", this bug was confirmed by
Glenn (see message #22). Maybe this triggers also archiving after 4
weeks, dunno.

Don't understand. What do you mean with 'max-bugs'? The number of bugs
presented when searching?

Thanks. There are some new patches in the git repo which allow to save
and reuse the result of debbugs-org in a file xxx.org. This was inspired
by a patch from Sebastien.

I haven't increased the debbugs version yet (publishing to the public
ELPA visibility), waiting for comments on usefulness. Maybe you give it
a try ...

Best regards, Michael.
