[Reportbug-maint] Bug#518051: reportbug: listing all wnpp bugs is useless

Package: reportbug
Version: 3.48
Severity: normal


I used reportbug to file an ITP. reportbug fetched and listed all wnpp
bugs. Currently, there are 2787 bugs to go through. I don't think that
anybody will go through the list, so it's useless to fetch it.

Could you add a question before fetching all the bugs, so it's possible
to shortcut that step?

Thank you,
