I've seen this finally, sorry to disturb people. Will try to be more
quiet in the future, while testing.

"test" is an already existing pseudo-package, which was crying to be
used by me for tests. Maybe we could give it a more separated target

In fact the Debian BTS supports this. You can write an email to
<address@hidden>, and then you'll get all bug's mails
then. I did two parallel tests, submitting new bugs towards and (pseudo-package "test" in both
cases), and sending the subscribe email (with another email address of
mine) afterwards. For Debian BTS this succeeded.

Obviously, they have implemented this after 2009, when
was born. But as far as I can see, this is _not_ an attribute which is
set inside the bug. It seems to be rather a mailing list feature, how
the subscriptions are managed.

This is a little bit unfortune, as I wanted to port this feature to I have no experience with mailing lists.

Best regards, Michael.
