Well, it is not fun and I thought the same in some similar cases.
However, I do not think that it is a good idea to test the patience of
ftpmaster by diverging from the default procedure when beeing a
newcomer.  It might be useful to know that reportbug is just generating
an email.  You might try to create a first e-mail using reportbug, save
the resulting mail before sending it, use this as template for all other
mails to send and then send them all in a batch to
control@bug.debian.org.  This might save some typing work.

Kind regards
