Package: reportbug
Version: 4.12.6
Severity: normal

Dear Reportbug,

I have installed a server with 150-250mb packages. It is a server.

If one would like to report a bug, then, one has to install really a lot
of things tthat are un-necessary.

Python even.

Please could you make a port of reportbug for normal humans, for
servers, and light weight machines.

It is not normal that only kde, gnome, ... heavy rich people (with nice
hardware) can report a bug.

I have vim, a Pentium II, mpg321, samba, and few things. Gcc, elinks,
mplayer, and it is very fine and fast, and <300 mb.

Yours Sincerely
