For what it's worth, it seems to work just fine for me:

  $ reportbug deb-multimedia-keyring
  Will use mailto protocol talking to marillat at deb-multimedia.org.

  $ reportbug media-player-info
  Will use https protocol talking to bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?product=media-player-info.

I haven't tried filing a bogus bug for https, but using mailto for one
of my own packages worked flawlessly.

Today is a good day for information-gathering.  Read someone else's mail file.
