Well, for a package like gedit, which has no relationship to HelixCode,
I would expect it to work like Red Hat Bugzilla: if a bug is
reported against the HelixCode package for gedit, it is the HelixCode
people's responsibility to forward the bug upstream if appropriate.

Now, if Jacob doesn't like that responsibility, he shouldn't make
the Helixcode package of bug buddy report bugs to the HelixCode
bug tracker.

I don't think package maintainers's should be asked to follow more
than one bug tracker.
