My FTBFS bugzilla account is in the 'editbugs' group in bugzilla so it
can set the blocked/dependson lists. That may also be necessary to

the bug is created, I get an error that the account does not have the
necessary permissions. I also specified both when I created the bug, but
both were silently not set.
The first bug I created is:
