Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.0
Severity: wishlist

Please enhance the release.debian.org binNMU reporting functionality to ask
for the release where the binNMU should be performed. The question
should default to sid similarily to the ftp.debian.org RM template questions.

For a binNMU in a different distribution than sid please tag it with the
  Tag: $DISTRO
and extend the nmu command line by inserting ' $DISTRO . ' before the
-m "message", i.e.

  nmu xfce4-settings_4.11.3-1 . ALL . experimental . -m "Rebuild against upower 0.99.1"

binNMUs outside of unstable may be needed for
* experimental
* $STABLE-backports
* $STABLE-proposed-updates
(ordered approximately by the number of binNMU requests I filed,
Maybe elsewhere, too
