Package: reportbug
Version: 4.8
Severity: normal

Reportbug moves a user-provided Forwarded: pseudo-header to the mail
header (which has quite a different meaning). This happens regardless
of whether the pseudo-header is added by hand during editing or
specified at the command line:

$ reportbug --email=foo at foo -P 'Forwarded: foo' -q --realname=foo
--template foo 2> /dev/null | head
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
From: foo <foo at foo>
To: Debian Bug Tracking System <submit at bugs.debian.org>
Subject: none
Forwarded: foo

Package: foo
Severity: wishlist
