Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4.4
Severity: normal


When composing a bug report for the package gmsh, I noticed that the
list of packages beneath the text "Versions of packages gmsh depends
on" had a mistake. It listed mpi-default-dev as not installed, which
is not true.

Here is an excerpt from the package list within the bug report:

pn  mpi-default-bin                  <none>

but it is installed:

$ dpkg -s mpi-default-bin
Package: mpi-default-bin
Status: purge ok installed

Best regards
Torquil Sørensen
