[Reportbug-maint] Bug#783400: reportbug: include package taint information in reportbug reports

package: reportbug
version: 6.6.3
severity: wishlist

Somewhat often users report bugs that are caused by packages from
non-debian sources, for example #782365 is due to deb-multimedia.org

It would be nice by default include information about the non-debian
packages on a users system and/or non-debian sources.list in reportbug
reports generated on such systems.  And mark the bug report as tainted
so that the problem is known early and less time is wasted on these
kinds of easily avoidable problems.

Best wishes,
