[Reportbug-maint] Bug#758309: reportbug: Properly distinguish between source and binary packages in ftpmaster removal requests

Package: reportbug
Version: 6.5.0+nmu1
Severity: wishlist


I filed a ftp.debian.org removal request for the *binary* package
v4l-utils. But the source package does have the same name. So in my
request #756154 the ftpmaster tried to remove the source package with
that name.

I think it would be beneficial if the ftp.debian.org package removal
template would allow to distinguish between source and binary removals.

The wiki page at https://wiki.debian.org/ftpmaster_Removals also gives
no hint how to properly addess this problem.
