Actually, this isn't that simple at the moment. There are packages that
directly list me as the maintainer, but I want bugs for them assigned to
the herd by default - so that the other folk in the herd can find them
Perhaps this could be alleviated with an explicit assign-to field in
package metadata? At the same time, it should have an explicit cc-to
field, for cases where the maintainer is not in the herd.
My idea would actually be the contrary: that the package is assigned
to its maintainer (who could not be in the herd) and the herd(s) are
CCed. Uven if the maintainer is in the herd, this procedure should be
followed, as it is easier for the maintainer to track down the
