I don't understand the purpose of excluding an entire project's sources. Should redhat's bugzilla, gentoo, etc. also be excluded for the same reason? If not, why do they get special treatment? Is there really a problem at all? The debian report included the upstream commit, so you had a link to a primary resource anyway. So, I think a simple solution to this 'problem' of secondary sources is follow them to the primary one? Best wishes, Mike
