You might want to try the package reportbug. Use: "reportbug
<package-name>". Information about the BTS can be found at
You can also get to a description of the state of the package by
starting a package search [http://www.fr.debian.org/distrib/packages]
and when listing the package you are interested in, clicking on the
"developer information" package, which shows the information on the
source package from which the binary package you searched for comes.
