Package: reportbug
Version: 6.3.1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

This is a bug that's trivial to fix but greatly impacts usability
for a user, and also usefulness of bug reports for package

Here are pastes of two of reportbug's prompts:

Is the bug you found listed above [y|N|b|m|r|q|s|f|e|?]
Submit this report on ------ (e to edit) [Y|n|a|c|e|i|l|m|p|q|d|t|s|?]?

Great. Most users will know what options Y and N mean, and (e to edit)
is explained. That leaves just 12 unexplained options ...
