Re: Searching website for a bug
So I use reportbug to file bugs too? What about the package debbugs? I installed thinking I need to use it, but reading the doc is making me think otherwise.

Sure can! All you need is to install reportbug then try the following:
The default behavior if reportbug is to search the bts and show you
existing bugs to make sure yours isn't a duplicate. If you don't
think your bug is listed then it has a set of prompts for you to file
a new bug.
I would recommend saving a copy of the email before it sends it off
just in case you have an issue you can recover what you need to file
the bug again in case of a .... bug in reportbug.
