[Reportbug-maint] Bug#804926: Please add debbugs.gnu.org to SYSTEMS list

Package: python-reportbug
Version: 6.6.5
Severity: wishlist
File: /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/reportbug/debbugs.py

debbugs.gnu.org is GNU's debbugs instance

I often use "bts --bts-server debbugs.gnu.org",
but there is no equivalent for reportbug.
It appears to require appending to SYSTEMS in debbugs.py.

I'm not sure this would actually be useful --- for reporting upstream
bugs in GNU Emacs, I mostly use "emacs -f report-emacs-bug".

The issue arose this morning because someone had already done that,
and wanted to add a follow-up "it's fixed now" comment,
but didn't know how to reply from mutt using "bts ... show -m 123".

He ended up just starting a new thread by emailing 123 at d.g.o directly,
but it would've been fun to try reportbug -N first. :-)
