Package: reportbug
Version: 4.11
Severity: minor

While selecting tags in reportbug, the following line is displayed :
 2 experimental  This bug only applies to the unstable branch of Debian.

the description is clearly wrong, option 9 is the good one :
9 sid           This bug only applies to the unstable branch of Debian.
