What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Chat supports oneboxing for Launchpad bugs for projects other than Ubuntu. For example, linking to shows the bug description.

However, bugs in Ubuntu use a different URL scheme, which also specifies the package name. I tried linking to Launchpad bug #612986,, in chat. It does not onebox. Currently, to get it to work, you have to manually edit the link to

This nerfs the oneboxing, since most Ubuntu bugs redirect to a URL containing the package.

The fix is to also recognize Launchpad URLs containing +source/fortune-mod/+bug/.
