Package: reportbug
Version: 3.48
Severity: normal

The pseudo package "kernel" has been removed. It was useful in the days,
where Debian had about 10 different kernel source packages, but is
obsolete, since we now build our kernel from the source package linux-2.6.

Please remove "kernel" from reportbug. Bugs file against "kernel" should
be filed against the "linux-2.6" source package instead.
