Hi all,

there are often bugs reported in http://launchpad.net that are valid 
bugs upstream. Since ubuntu users rarely know about xfce bugzilla only a 
few of them also report their issues there, so letting upstream devs 
know about them depends on me or someone else regularely reviewing and 
pushing them here. I often don't get around to do that and bugs 
unreported in bugzilla but still valid in svn languish with no comments 
in launchpad for weeks or months.
If specific module maintainers were willing to help with this and they 
made a LP account and subscribed to bug report notifications on their 
respective ubuntu source packages it would be a great help. The amount 
of reports is much lower than that for bugzilla so it would not disrupt 
your workflow.

Chances are you all have LP accounts automatically created when the 
importing of any package you worked on happened, but these accounts are 
inactive by default.

Example URL:
  on the left of the page bugs and bugmail settings let one see and 
subscribe to bug reports.

This is so upstream devs can see reports that may not have been reported 
in bugzilla. No need to spend time on commenting on the bug or marking 
invalid or linking to existing bugzilla one if you don't feel like it, 
just get notified of things you are interesed in.

Let me know if any of you are interested or need assistance in getting 
around LP, it's not the most intuitive UI the world has seen.
