I asked the admins:

[05 Mar 10:53] <stickster> Question for anyone... 'fedorabugs' group
membership is, I believe, implied by 'packager' group membership --
how does that work exactly?
[05 Mar 10:53] <stickster> By which I mean, does FAS have an
understanding of group membership dependencies?
[05 Mar 10:55] <mmcgrath> stickster: implied?
[05 Mar 10:55] <mmcgrath> packager might require fedorabugs.
[05 Mar 10:55] <mmcgrath> it'd just mean someone has to be in
fedorabugs before they can be in packager.
[05 Mar 10:55] <nirik> I thought packager automagically added
fedorabugs now.
[05 Mar 10:55] <nirik> but I don't know how it does that.
[05 Mar 10:56] <stickster> nirik: Yeah, that's what I was looking for
but didn't say it very well. I'm trying to find out if, when someone
is added to 'packager', they are automatically added to 'fedorabugs'.
[05 Mar 10:56] <nirik> yes, I think that is the case. ;)
[05 Mar 10:57] <mmcgrath> if it does that, not even I know how that
mechanism works :)
