[Reportbug-maint] Bug#546914: reportbug: Copies sent to: shows mangled/encoded name

Raphaël Hertzog hertzog at debian.org
Wed Sep 16 12:47:08 UTC 2009

Package: reportbug
Version: 4.7
Severity: minor


When I start reportbug I see:
Using '"Raphaël Hertzog" <hertzog at debian.org>' as your from address.

When I send my bug I see:
Copies sent to:
  "=?utf-8?q?Rapha=C3=ABl_Hertzog?=" <hertzog at debian.org>

Seeing how my name has been encoded for mail transport is of no interest
to me and every time I see this I wonder (for a second) what's happening.

Please show the unencoded name here as well.
