OK.  If they want to speak up I'm happy to take guidance, but with over
200 bugs, my feeling is that anything else is just going to make being
a new maintainer around here too over-whelming.  

Is there some formal guidance somewhere?

I really don't like the false hope Debian bugs give, and actually wish
we had a way to auto-restrict them to issues in sid/testing and issues
in the packaging, because as somebody has to say anyway, anything else
must go though upstream by our team policy, and almost certainly won't
be backported anyway.

The (silly, IMNSHO) bar we/Debian have on stable updates makes this
particularly pointless.

Almost none of them are, from what I can see.
