When should an email address be suitable as a bug tracker in an Extras package?
Andre Klapper, the maemo.org bugmaster, is looking to resolve the question of whether email addresses are acceptable in the bug tracker field (and when). This is an issue that's been unclear since the bug tracker QA requirement was implement and one Andre is looking to settle for good. If you'd like to weigh in on the issue, see the maemo-community mailing list. Dave Neary was in favour of being more flexible: IMHO, the use of an email address for bug tracking should not be a reason to -1 a project, but certainly maintainers should be encouraged to set up a better bug tracker if they have "rich functionality". A consensus seems to be forming that rather than have an email address, a a blank bugtracker field would resolve to the package's page on maemo.org, where testers provide their feedback.
