[Pkg-fonts-devel] We should take care to reopen bugs after package renames

Hello list,

Paul Wise pinged me yesterday about a side effect of package renames.

When we rename packages, we then ask for the old package to be removed
from unstable.

As a consequence, bug reports for the removed packages are closed. We
should be careful about reassigning these bug reports before
requesting the package removal.

I went through my mailboxes trying to find such bug reports and
actually only found two of them, which I reopened and reassigned.

There might indeed be still some others as the renamed packages are
still in stable and I suspect that bugs are not closed in that
case. So, I would advise going through all fonts-* packages and check
whether there are still bugs opened against their ttf- counterpart. It
probably affects packages renamed by Yamane-san or me....
