All emails about bug reports get sent to the mailing-list
address@hidden, so yes it will be seen by those who subscribe to
this list. You can also explicitly add a `Cc:` if you want input from
someone in particular (e.g. I don't subscribe to address@hidden
any more, so if you want my input on a particular bug, make sure I'm in
the `Cc:`).

Beside Eli's answer, you might also get ideas from discussions (where
members of emacs-devel may be able to help you move from a local
problem to a more far-reaching solution).
