Bug Description

https://launchpad.net/~janitor

says

"Launchpad Janitor does not use Launchpad."

If it doesn't use Launchpad, why does it have an account on Launchpad solely to declare that it does not use Launchpad?

~janitor is considered invalid by Lp vocabularies so it we cannot use it in searches. We cannot search for bugs that ~janitor changes.

I can think of three ideas for this:
1) Activate ~janitor's account, and add some information on it's description;
2) Create one static page for it - don't know if it's doable or not;
3) Provide more useful information on help.launchpad.net about Janitor's role (more than in the 'Bug expiry' section) and close this bug.

What do you registry guys think about it?

Another option is to special-case janitor actions in bug reports so that they appear to have happened by themselves, rather than having been performed by some entity that then needs to be linked to.

Changed in launchpad-registry:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Triaged

Does it really take more than a year to fix this?

This bug is not a priority to fix. There are so many more important bugs to fix this bug will only be fixed when an opportunity arises. Hence is is *Low*. The community are welcome to provide a fix. Given the differing opinions about how to address this, I think the person who chooses to fix the issue can choose to implementation/data fix.

This bug is blocking searches where we want to know when the status of a bug changed because the janitor made the change; it is not possible to search with a deactivated user because Lp considers the user to be invalid.
