Package: reportbug
Version: 4.1
Severity: wishlist

So that I don't lose track of this issue again, this is the bug report
detailing the reasons why reportbug should redirect bugs against any
package with a version string ending in em[0-9] to the
buildd.emdebian.org pseudo-package:

"If you start seeing bugs or getting email about your packages where the
version string ends in em[0-9], or where dependencies mentioned by
reportbug include such a version suffix, the user is running one of the
two Emdebian distributions released alongside lenny (and based on lenny
packages). You might also see Emdebian in the output of 'apt-cache
policy' if your bug reports request or supply such data.

If there is any doubt that the bug is present in Debian, please
immediately re-assign the bug to the buildd.emdebian.org pseudo-package
in the BTS."
