Or: change the mechanism to avoid a trip through NEW for simple cases that Chris outlined: new binary or soname bump. Reserve NEW for truly new things.

Quoting Chris Lamb <lamby@xxxxxxxxxx>:
In many cases, there is an issue open about the new binary package

(In my experience, there is not.)

When there is no bug report open at all, well, bad luck.

Well, possbibly, but if one is investing time and effort in changing a

True. Proposal: Maintainer should make sure they have a bug open about
any new binary packages and close them with the upload. If they forget
this "goto badluck;".
