Package: reportbug
Version: 6.4.4+deb7u1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,
Navigating from one to another question with letters is insufficiently
intuitive in comparison to full words (consider `[y|N|b|m|r|q|s|f|e|?]` for
the list of already reported bugs). This is refusing for novices as well. An
option to configure between letters and words should be added and the default
be set to lwords.
