Re: [Ubuntu-phone] Policy: filing bugs against Ubuntu packages instead of upstream projects

If upstreams don't oppose to that, bugs should only be filed against Ubuntu packages, discouraging the direct upstream reporting. 

I think the distinction between upstream and distro is a useful one, and I'd be sad if we started treating them as one and the same (or created a blanket rule about where bugs should be reported, which is effectively the same thing, in my mind). 

I also believe that the correct place for almost all bugs to be filed is against the upstream projects itself (at least, for the core Canonical/Ubuntu projects - I assume we're having this conversation in the context of canonical-sponsored Ubuntu Touch projects).

I suspect one of the issues is that it's easy to miss bugs filed against the Ubuntu package only. Is there an easy tweak we can make to launchpad so these bugs are more visible? Or perhaps there's already a way, but I just don't know about it?
