Agreed, and sorry for not having included such information. I'll try
to do that if I have to send more reports for a missing package.
Those who have read the previous README.Debian in gettext, however,
will understand easily why this is being done.

It's ok that geeqie did not receive a report. Not all packages having
"build-depends: cvs" are involved.
Bug reports have been sent only to those of them who actually used
autopoint during a test build.
There might be missing reports if the package build-depends on cvs
in an indirect way, i.e. package A build-depends on B and package B
depends (directly or indirectly) on cvs.
If anybody knows of a case like that, I would be interested.
