[Reportbug-maint] Bug#779103: reportbug: fails when you try to file a bug on wnpp pseudo package
nomadium at debian.org
Tue Feb 24 15:44:06 UTC 2015
reportbug used to work for me to file ITP bugs until a week ago or so.
Now, when I try to file a bug on wnpp pseudo package, reportbug dies
(I suspect this happens when it is retrieving the full list of bugs
reported on that package, that is very very long as you already know).
I say this because I'm obviusly using reportbug to report this issue.
It's working to report bugs in another packages except when I try
to report an ITP on wnpp.
Anyway, I'm pasting the full transcript of my failed session with
miguel at alice:~$ reportbug --mutt wnpp
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:57: GtkWarning: could not open display

Will send report to Debian (per lsb_release).
What sort of request is this? (If none of these things mean anything to you, or you are trying to report a bug in an existing
package, please press Enter to exit reportbug.)
1 ITP This is an `Intent To Package'. Please submit a package description along with copyright and URL in such a report.
2 O The package has been `Orphaned'. It needs a new maintainer as soon as possible.
3 RFA This is a `Request for Adoption'. Due to lack of time, resources, interest or something similar, the current maintainer is
asking for someone else to maintain this package. They will maintain it in the meantime, but perhaps not in the best possible
way. In short: the package needs a new maintainer.
4 RFH This is a `Request For Help'. The current maintainer wants to continue to maintain this package, but they needs some help to
do this, because their time is limited or the package is quite big and needs several maintainers.
5 RFP This is a `Request For Package'. You have found an interesting piece of software and would like someone else to maintain it
for Debian. Please submit a package description along with copyright and URL in such a report.
Choose the request type: 1
Please enter the proposed package name: headius-options
Checking status database...
Please briefly describe this package; this should be an appropriate short description for the eventual package:
> foo bar
Your report will be carbon-copied to debian-devel, per Debian policy.
