Package: bugs.debian.org
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-08-11
Severity: wishlist


Here we have a report which has a space on the line before 'Severity: 
wishlist'. That makes the report appear in section 'Normal bugs' 
instead of 'Wishlist items'. 

Either reject reports where a 'Severity' pseudoheader isn't detected 
or parse the report more aggressively.

Leading spaces in the pseudo headers may allow variables to be set
that were not intended to be set; FE, a common tactic is for wnpp
packages to use this effect to include the actual package name without
causing the Package header to be set.

The only required header is the Package, as everything else has
default values or doesn't need to be set, so it's only appropriate to
reject bugs without it.
