Hi Sandro,

Your response is unclear to me - if reportbug requires a specific
version of python 2.7, then the debian package for reportbug should
include the requirement for that particular version of python 2.7, which
it hasn't, which is the essence of the bug I'm reporting. When I updated
package reportbug, that install should have either auto-updated python
2.7 or noted the incompatibility.
