A current problem I see with using upstream release monitoring is that
there is no easy way to query which bugs are ignored, because it is
perfectly valid to not touch the bug as a maintainer but only update the
package. This will avoid a new bug to be filed, but the maintainer will
still be notified with a new comment.
