It doesn't have to be bug-lilypond if that's problematic. I just suggest that there be _some_ automated tracking of downstream bug reports.

We're maybe unlikely to agree on this, but I just don't see that knowing that a problem has been reported is _ever_ unuseful, even if you don't plan on following up on that report.

I also don't think that the volume is ever going to be large enough to be problematic. If it _is_, then you have a different problem -- large numbers of bug reports that are not getting where they need to.

If you think those notices are worthwhile, then *you* sign up to
receive them, and send any good bug reports to bug-lilypond.

If I do this, and they _do_ prove useful, will you reconsider the option of automated tracking?
