Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.3

Apparently reportbug fails to parse information about conffiles that are 
marked as obsolete:

$ dpkg-query -Wf '${Conffiles}\n' debtags
 /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/80debtags fb8a4c6ea61d741027d83bcce2d2d21f

 /etc/cron.daily/debtags 49d32651623dd808a44a8a6ab67500c1
 /etc/bash_completion.d/debtags ac56ef1f1e1f45ade510264e8741417c obsolete

$ reportbug --template debtags 2>/dev/null | grep -A1 'Configuration Files'
