status of sending attachments with reportbug?



hey all,

i've seen what seems to be conflicting information about the status
of sending attachments with reportbug.  does this work?  i sent a
patch via reportbug yesterday and haven't gotten any kind of confirmation,
and the web page doesn't show that i've submitted the report at all.

running reportbug on a woody box gives me a warning that attachments
aren't supported:

NOTE: MANY MUAs WILL ATTEMPT TO SEND MIME-ENCODED MESSAGES TO THE DEBIAN BTS.
THE DEBIAN BTS CURRENTLY HAS BUGS IN ITS HANDLING OF MIME (SEE #36813 et al.).
YOU SHOULD NOT USE MIME ATTACHMENTS IN YOUR REPORT.

though i don't get this on a box running testing/unstable, and the bug
page shows it being closed and re-opened several times...

otoh, i submitted another bug earlier with small patch attachment that
did go through and does show up on the page.  do i have any way of
knowing if there was a problem with the more recent bug/patch submit
that i did?  


	sean
