I remember Simon doing quite a few of Wayland related bug reports, and
at least some of them were usertagged as

User: pkg-gnome-maintainers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Usertags: wayland

https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/pkgreport.cgi?users=pkg-gnome-maintainers@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx;tag=wayland

It would probably be good if you also use those when doing your bug reports.
