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

Is there a tool we could use to transition upstream bugs to distro bugs, then? I'm all for having a single bug list - at least until there's other consumers of a project than Ubuntu.

Not that I'm aware of but I think this can be quickly crafted. 

Yes please :)

Perhaps the things I work on are unusual, but I'd guess that 90% of all the bugs filed against autopilot are filed against the upstream project, and we've grown accustomed to looking there for bug reports. 

I concede the point about the fact that people dogfooding Ubuntu Touch should file bugs against the distro, I'm just not sure how to reconcile that with the fact that most of our users file bugs against the upstream projects, and our developers are trained to work with upstream bugs rather than distro ones.

Your proposal makes sense, I have no trouble adopting it, I would love to get a more sane work flow than "now you have to look in two separate bug lists every day".

Any hints?
