Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4
Severity: minor


Reportbug fails to include full description for wnpp bugs, e.g.:

  Package: wnpp
  Severity: normal

  I intend to orphan the subcommander package.

  The package description is:
   uitoolkit::qt, x11::application

apt-cache switch some time ago from Description to  Description-??, and
I think this is the cause of the bug:
  [18]/tmp> apt-cache show subcommander | grep Description
  Description-en: Graphical client for Subversion
  Description-md5: 1b1931be84332c697ecb94b0d2ed2637
  Description-en: Graphical client for Subversion
