As I haven't been able to find a feature request for that, here is one!

Dear reportbug maintainers, the contest of this request is the -devel
(sub)thread started at
<http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2010/07/msg00492.html>. In
subsequent messages, it has been argued that permitting to report bugs
via http (actually, via port 80 ...) would remove some more barriers to
bug reporting, due to firewalling and the like.

I understand that for such a feature mere support in reportbug isn't
enough, so you might want to block this feature request by some other
feature request on debbugs (I haven't yet checked whether the latter
request already exists or not).


PS that thread just made me try again the GTK2 UI of reportbug: it's
   just *great* nowadays, kudos!
