Subject: elpa-debian-el: Using debian-bug-mail-* overrides

Package: elpa-debian-el
Version: 37.8
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

This is a test of the suggestion made in #416 to override the various
debian-bug-mail-* variables with their Devuan equivalents.  While this
appears to work fine (judging from the mail headers I see while writing
this), grepping the code in debian-bug.el for `` turns up a
long list of other references (46 based on a quick and dirty count) that
may need to be changed for proper integration with the Devuan BTS.

I guess that can be left for another issue, though.  The first priority
is getting Devuan and Debian bugs reports in their respective BTSs with
as little human intervention as possible.
