User bug submissions should go directly into the database so that a PR
is allocated and they get a response when it's closed. I'd like all
submissions to go to a apache-bugs mailing list so those who want to
can see bug reports as they come in.

If the "bug team" is judicious in handling bug reports then non-apache
bugs can be immediately closed. Every week/month an analysis of the
database is sent out which lists all open reports, since the bug team
has closed the irrelevant ones this would be a concise list of the
genuine bugs currently present which is what Alexei wants.

It wouldn't be *that* hard to write a script that just mailed out the
days new submissions but that might not give people a chance to close
irrelevant reports.
