avoidable (that we can detect easily that the problems weren't
actually problems), please reply to it and let us know.

this email because you are subscribed to packages on the PTS, this

receive anything.
- ignore <bug> <email>
You will no longer receive information about this bug.

All commands are manually processed, but you will receive
confirmation. The commands are just here so that we know precisely
what you want.
