In Debian, I can use the above URL to quickly see the open bugs for a package. In Ubuntu, it seems I have to go to launchpad, and click, click, click... which is .

Is there a quick way to see all the bugs of a package in Ubuntu? One which doesn't require clicking through hell and back?

There's a link called "Bug Reports" at the package information page of every Ubuntu package. You can also try to open https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/[PACKAGE NAME]/+bugs directly.

Take apache2 in Ubuntu 9.10 as an example: http://packages.ubuntu.com/karmic/apache2 leads to https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apache2/+bugs

The packages link, while still not as direct as Debian's (well, packages.ubuntu.com looks like it's the same code as p.d.o), is better than "clicking through hell and back", so thanks. –  Jürgen A. Erhard Mar 19 '10 at 17:50
