I think
a better approach is if bernhard's SR->bugzilla interface mails the
submitter if the bug is not public and then let the submitter decide if
it should be opened up, because a lot of bugs *do* make sense to be open
and are just not open because e.g. legal-team always opens up closed
bugs even if the problem is just a missing COPYING in a GPL package.

I do not fully understand who "the submitter" is.

If "the submitter" is the one who submitted the fixed package
then usually "the submitter" is not the one who can decide
if the bug should be made public.

Assume the legal-team had filed a closed bug and assigned it
to "the submitter" who then submitted a fixed package,
then "the submitter" cannot make the bug public.

How could "the submitter" find out who the right one is
who can actually decide and actually make a bug public?

But if you submit a package with a bug fix mentioned, you can actually
go into the bug and ask legal-team if they are fine with opening the bug
if it appears to be community relevant. Noone else can
