limitations of reportbug and BTS


I wanted to report a minor bug on kicker using reportbug package tool. But then it forces me to read a huge number of bug titles (around 647 of them) most of which were not filed against kicker. For example it shows bugs against kdeprinter, kate, konsole etc., Why is this so? I think it kind of discourages users who want to report to bugs against a single package...

Moreover, bugs.debian.org does not allow me to search for bug reports which contain particular words. It kind of forces people to search against packages which I think is somewhat restrictive. For example, I wanted to search for bugs which have the error message

"X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3"

This kind of thing is not possible currently. Do you think it is a good implement such a feature? Currently bugs.kde.org allows this (searching for strings in the bug reports without worrying about package names etc.,).
