It would help, if the debbugs soap interface accepts queries for bug
subjects. Bug keywords can be queried already, but the keywords used so
far are (fixed notabug wontfix unreproducible moreinfo patch) - not so
useful for the given case.

Another query is possible for package names - here we have (emacs21
automake aquamacs emacs22 gnus notemacs cc-mode
coreutils w32 org-mode ns emacs). Hmm.

Best regards, Michael.
