For the Guix project I wrote Mumi[1], an alternative web frontend to
Debbugs, which can be seen here:


The idea was to provide something that’s reminiscent of the Github

The official Debbugs web interface also allows you to filter by
submissions with patches and by status, though it may not be easily
discoverable how to do that.
