Package: reportbug
Version: 6.5.0
Severity: wishlist

When triaging bug reports, sometimes one needs to reply to a bug report.
Scripting this would be easier if replying to a bug report was possible
from the command line. Reportbug already provides the -N flag to query a
specific report, but an additional flag (--reply, -r maybe) to skip
reading the bug log and just fire an editor would help.
