Bug Description

If you look at https://bugs.edge.launchpad.net/screen/+bug/13211/comments/2 you'll notice Daniel posted a URL form for Savannah that is longer: https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=16661

It would be nice to auto-detect this as currently one needs to construct a URL manually based on the ID.

Also from the duplicates:
Consider bug 299221; it contains an upstream link to the Savannah bug tracker. Using the UI at savannah.gnu.org, the link from filing the upstream bug was provided to me as https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?24862. However, Launchpad only accepts bugs in the form http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?24862; this makes it difficult to add a bug watch unless the user has already seen a Savannah bug watch and knows to delete 'index.php' from the URL; a reasonable assumption for the user to make, however, would be that these trackers simply aren't supported.

See also bug #84323, where there's another situation in which it's less handy to use the URL.

Also urls with 'index.php' in the url such as http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?23827 should be accepted.

In 303170 gmb said this was easy, to see what was done for sourceforge.

summary: - Savannah bug watches should match longer URL
+ Savannah bug watches should match multiple URLs

This url should also work, but I think "nongnu" causes an error: http://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/index.php?32597

Well, nongnu is a separate savannah instance AIUI, so should be a separate tracker instance.

Another example. You're driving people away from Ubuntu contributions by not fixing this and many other tools for 10 years!

https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?func=detailitem&item_id=55005 should have been added to https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/grub2-signed/+bug/1800340 in this case.
