I had no problem with the Ubuntu one for normal use. However, I
installed reportbug from git (5.1.1). With the same
/etc/dpkg/origins/gnu as above, I got the same listing of package
options. When I tried tro report a bug against emacs23-lucid, I got:

Getting status for emacs23-lucid...
A package named "emacs23-lucid" does not appear to be installed; do
you want to search for a similar-
looking filename in an installed package [Y|n|q|?]? n
Getting available info for emacs23-lucid...
Please enter the version of the package this report applies to (blank OK)
Will send report to GNU (per request).
Querying GNU BTS for reports on emacs23 (source)...
Traceback (most recent call last):

607, in handle_bts_query
    long_message('No record of this package found.', title=title)
TypeError: long_message() got an unexpected keyword argument 'title'

and for emacs, I got no bug reports found, as before.

I don't know if it matters, because I am on natty I am using Python 2.7.
