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
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.,).
