Please either do not use the word combination "fencepost bug" at all
or explain its meaning.

As far as I could find out it refers to a political joke (!) in the
USA comparing a "fencepost turtle" to e.g. George W. Bush or Sarah
Palin. I don't think such a term is suitable for being used in a
Debian GR.

(In case I'm wrong with my interpretation of that term, it proves my
point even more: Please either don't use it or explain it because the
term is obviously unclear.)
