Package: reportbug
Version: 4.5
Severity: minor
Tags: patch

While choosing the good package between multiple ones, e.g "reportbug gnome-terminal" will prompt two packages, it would be good to clarify that if ENTER is pressed, Reportbug will just exit.
Here is a patch to display the appropriate warning.
