Re: Make bug package required? (was Re: berolist.deb)

How could that ever be checked? Bug used to have (I am not the maintainer
anymore...) a check so that it cannot be run as root and does not read
files as root. Contents of config files are important for the maintainer
of the package. 

The configfiles are displayed when the message is written. The bug
reporter can review the information before it is submitted.

Cannot see a good reason why this is a "bug"...
