We have one common bug database because we have one email address for
reporting bugs.  But that is not the only way we could do it.  We
could subdivide this and have separate bug databases fed by separate
email addresses, if that is better.

In order for it to be better, users need to be able to tell which
place to send each bug report.  There should not be too many places.

The frequent approach in big projects is "forwarding" bug reports to people responsible for respective piece of code.

Then not everybody has to be subscribed to all bug reports.

Splitting big subprojects (like Gnus) to separate mailboxes could help as well, though.
