it's been a while since I've been seeing some other buildd maintainers
(and not only them) report bugs against Source packages, using the
“Source:” pseudoheader (which I don't see documented on bugs.debian.org
pages anyway, but there is some bug about it in debbugs, see #540430
for example), and it would be a nice-to-have in reportbug.
>From my perspective, that would be very welcome:
$ reportbug -IO src:$ftbfsing_package
then paste the version there, and be done with it, without having to
query the BTS, try and find the source package where there are multiple
I've seen “src:” support being dropped (in the changelog), it might be a
way of detecting that a Source-based rather than Package-based report is
I'm Cc-ing owner@ to remind them of #540430; but also to know whether
lack of documentation about Source: pseudoheader support is a bug or a
feature. If that's the former, I can open a bug accordingly.
Thanks for considering.
