If you don't, then they'll file them just against "LiveCD" or
"distribution".  There's no way that scales.  Even with the small number
of released and officially blessed spins, I often have to go and look up
exactly which email addresses I want to reassign, eg, a KDE Live image
bug to.  Far better to have "KDE LiveCD", click reassign, and then let
them deal with it.

Yes, it means being a middle man, but that's one of the things you're
sort of signing up for when you want to maintain a spin.  Analagous to
how you're signing up to be the middle man between Fedora users and
upstream when you sign up to maintain a package.
