I just tried to file a bug against Ubuntu (unity8)¹, unfortunately I
can't set the status to 'Triaged', or decide the importance. So, well...
I can't triage Ubuntu (unity8) bugs.

AFAICT, we also don't get notified about new Ubuntu (unity8) bugs, even
though I added a subscription for my team².

Not exactly sure why that is, but the project has Maintainer: Ubuntu
Developers³, which actually doesn't exist...⁴

All in all, if all of us need to get added to some global Ubuntu team to
be able to triage Ubuntu (*) bugs for their projects, that's not
ideal... Current state doesn't work for us either...
