Hey guys,

thanks for the new upstream version and even a gtk2 interface. Looks
good. :)

Unfortunately there is a bug which is reproducable:

* file a report against wnpp
* choose ITP
* enter a random package name
* see how ui.ewrite is missing and reportbug fails

reportbug/debianbts.py uses ui.ewrite for messages to the user but
gtk2_ui.py doesn't have this function. I'm pretty sure that implementing
solves the problem as I just tried a

def ewrite (message):
    long_message (message)

in gtk2_ui.py and it worked. :)
