Default Bugs related to Linux package which are now orphan

Hello,

I have unpleasant news...

I noticed that there are these orphan bugs (no maintainer set, the
package that they are filed against is not present in Debian anymore).
They're about 121 (perhaps with some false positives), gathered from
[1], and attached (the list "flattened" to single lines in a text
file, easy to parse e.g. to extract bug numbers and reassign in bulk).

[1] http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?maint=
^- (yes, with empy "maint" parameter)

What should be done with them, reassign? To which package, then?


Cheers.


PS: Not subscribed to the list.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Any bug that probably affects/affected more than one binary package
should be reassigned to the current source package (src:linux-2.6 or
src:linux-tools). I've reassigned and/or closed most of these.

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.
