Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4.4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
When I'm filing a wnpp RFP bug, reportbug wants to show me all the
packages. Reportbug should be more intelligent and try to grep for
same or similar named packages. This would make it easier a bit on the
bandwidth (as people who would do RFP would usually name it the same
as upstream does) and would be a tad faster.

Looking forward to feedback.
