No, you need the FSF template. Sent offlist.

Well, debbugs-gnu-default-packages isn't used for
debbugs-gnu-search. But since you are writing about the debbugs package
in general, the hint might still be useful.

That's a hazardous way. Bugs are not only closed, but changed in many
ways. And you don't know, whether a user sends the control message she
has started to compose.

In debbugs-gnu-make-control-message, a bug is already removed from the
cache when the control message is sent. This is good enough I believe.

Next time the bug data are needed, the data for this bug are fetched
from the server. However, you must be a little bit patient, when you
retrieve the data immediately after sending the control message, the
server might not be ready with the action, and it might send the
unchanged data.

Best regards, Michael.
