Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4.4
Severity: wishlist
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

If for whatever reason, such as wanting to change your email settings, you want
to reconfigure reportbug, this is difficult to do within the GUI. The easiest
way to do it is 'reportbug --configure', and needing to use a command as part
of a GUI program does not encourage it to be accessible to non-technical users.
Its a small detail, but I think it is important to encourage such users to feel
able to report bugs so we can recognise what causes problems for them that
might be overlooked by more technically advanced users.
