The short description reads: Python modules for interacting with bug tracking systems
The extended description reads:
> reportbug is a tool designed to make the reporting of bugs in Debian
> and derived distributions relatively painless.
> This package includes Python modules which may be reusable by other
> tools that want to interact with the Debian bug tracking system.
> To actually report a bug, install the reportbug package.
I imagine that reportbug only supports debbugs, but this is mentioned nowhere. The first paragraph seems to suggest that all Debian derivatives are supported, which - whatever reportbug supports - is incorrect, since several do not have any issue tracking system. I suggest:
Python modules for interacting with Debbugs
reportbug is a tool designed to make reporting issues in Debian relatively painless.
This package includes Python modules used by reportbug and which may be used by other
tools that want to interact with issue tracking systems powered by Debbugs, such as Debian's.
To actually report an issue, install the reportbug package.
