I would say only bugs, that are in our version of LO should go to 
our bugtracker, but the ones from the distros to their adequate 
bugtracker ... ;) Maybe we could close those bugs with a comment á 
la "This bug is only related to $version of $distro. @reporter: 
Would you be so kind to report it again at $link?“ or the like ...

What does "soon" mean? The next weeks, months ... ;?

Would it not be better, when each distro changes this to their own 
BTS? I am not sure, if there is already a feature request in one of 
the different BTSes though ... :(
