Description: reports bugs in the Debian distribution
reportbug is a tool designed to make the reporting of bugs in Debian
and derived distributions relatively painless. Its features include:
* Integration with the mutt, af, and mh/nmh mail readers.
* Access to outstanding bug reports to make it easier to identify
whether problems have already been reported.
* Automatic checking for newer versions of packages.
* Optional automatic verification of integrity of packages via debsums.
* Support for following-up on outstanding reports.
* Optional PGP/GnuPG integration.
reportbug is designed to be used on systems with an installed mail
transport agent, like exim or sendmail; however, you can edit the
configuration file and send reports using any available mail server.
This package also includes the "querybts" script for browsing the
Debian bug tracking system.
If your system's users use locales with character sets other than
UTF-8 and ISO-8859-*, one of either python2.3-cjkcodecs or
python2.3-iconvcodec is required for proper operation. For Asian
locales, the use of python2.3-cjkcodecs is preferred over the more
