Package: reportbug
Version: 6.5.0+nmu1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

   * What led up to the situation?

I tried to setup reportbug.d.o as SMTP host after reading

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or

I added
to $HOME/.reportbugrc and started using reportbug.

   * What was the outcome of this action?

reportbug started without complaining (or at least I did not notice)

   * What outcome did you expect instead?

Immediate abortion and a clearly visible message telling that the format
of that line is wrong and the user should better RTFM reportbug.conf(5).
