Did you consider to ask the bugzilla maintainers to add a "Note" like
the one for security bugs? Maybe it can also be shown early in the
bug-filing process.
I am asking because the number of "sunrise" mails via maintainer-wanted
and now the expected "proxy-maint" info mails via maintainer-needed are
boring.

This package has no maintainer so this bug may go unnoticed for a long time.
Gentoo has a dedicated team[1] for assisting users in maintaining orphaned
packages. If you are interested in maintaining this package, please contact
proxy-maint@gentoo.org.

Right, I didn't think of that. We could possibly do the same with
sunrise too. However, a comment draws more attention than a bugzilla note.

That's exactly the problem for watchers of maintainer-needed or -wanted.
Every mail draws some attention.

Anyway I can /dev/null those mails. Just need to create another rule.
