Install the 'bug' package and any depenencies: 'apt-get install bug'

Then just run the command 'bug' as a regular user. It will ask you for a
short description, i.e the subject and then open up your editor($EDITOR)
and give you a template file to edit and fill in some information for
the maintainer. If you want to set the Severity to wishlist then when
your editor pops up add 

Severity: wishlist

just under the other fields that are at the top of the file.  This will
all make since once you see what I am describing.  

Or you can go to http://www.debian.org/Bugs/Reporting and read the
instructions for doing it manually via email.
