How to become bug supervisor for my own packages

Asked by David Farning on 2010-08-14

I am leading a team of people to package and provide service and support for Sugar on Ubuntu. see .

My question is how do I assign sugarteam, or myself, as the bug supervisor for all of the packages maintained by sugarteam.

I can get a summary view of bugs in all subscribed packages by going to But I can not determine how to create a view where I can see the bug name and status of each bug in a single view.

My challenge is that I am have hired a team to work on Sugar on both debian and Ubuntu, am I am spending an inordinate amount of time managing bugs in LP. My guess is that I am missing something significant in LP workflow.

FWIW on I see instructions to


Many projects create specific teams to act as the bug supervisor or security contact, allowing several people to share the work.

To set your project's bug and security contacts, visit its bug overview page - for example: - then click Change details, followed by the People tab.

If you'd prefer not to set these - perhaps because your project is small enough not to need specific contacts - you, as project owner, take them by default.


but I don't see a link to 'change details on any of the sugarteams packages.

Bugs in the Ubuntu packages are handled by the Ubuntu BugControl team:
You need to be a member of this team to set the importance of the bugs in any package in Ubuntu.

To join it, contact the team saying that you're the upstream developer of Sugar. See also:
