The *only* problem of reportbug is that users do not really know
about it. About 50% of people droping in at Debian boothes do
not have the slightest idea how to repot bugs - even people who
are long standing Debian users. So I would suggest to reassign this
bug to debian-www that this tool should be documented better on the
web pages. Or may be even debian-installer should mention reportbug
to introduce users to this evident tool.
