Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.3
Severity: normal

Dear Sir, 

I am encountering this issue regarding reportbug and the app as follows:

*** Welcome to reportbug.  Use ? for help at prompts. ***

Using 'yellow <yellowprotoss at gmail.com>' as your from address.
Getting status for xfe...
Will use http protocol talking to sourceforge.net/projects/xfe.
Maintainer for xfe is 'Joachim Wiedorn <ad_debian at joonet.de>'.
Looking up dependencies of xfe...
Getting changed configuration files...

Please briefly describe your problem (max. 100 characters allowed; you can elaborate in a moment). This will be the bug email
subject, so write a concise summary of what is wrong with the package, for example, "fails to send email" or "does not start with
-q option specified" (type Ctrl+c to exit).
> gqview is not necessary into the package
Rewriting subject to 'xfe: gqview is not necessary into the package'
Removing release critical severities, since running in 'novice' mode.
How would you rate the severity of this problem or report?

1 important  a bug which has a major effect on the usability of a package, without rendering it completely unusable to everyone.

2 normal     a bug that does not undermine the usability of the whole package; for example, a problem with a particular option or
             menu item.

3 minor      things like spelling mistakes and other minor cosmetic errors that do not affect the core functionality of the

4 wishlist   suggestions and requests for new features.

Please select a severity level: [normal]
