Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.0
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

In bug #771561 reportbug silently attached my /etc/fstab to the bug report.
This file contained information that others have already been harassed for.

The file was deleted from the Debian bug tracking system.
However, I think it would be good if reportbug would prompt the user.
Then the user could decide if attachments to the bug report should be uploaded.
