It's worth looking at how Nick handled the bug report I filed against bug
(duplicate of the one I filed against reportbug). I think his scheme is

Yes, some files may, and could. I'd personally prefer to add something to
README.Debian though, that's less specific and doesn't assume they're in
the middle of a bug reporting tool.
