I like this

Agreed. If its not in Bugzilla, it doesn't exist

Now, this is to package maintainers, and not to Seth (who's already
doing an excellent job, albeit being overworked): if your build fails on
a certain arch and you ExcludeArch temporarily, it is /your/
responsibility to make sure the bug is filed

Michael has recently gone and done this in Bugzilla, and its mighty
helpful with tracking. At least I now know what bugs need fixing,
quickly
