Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.5
Followup-For: Bug #690537

I'm adding my info to this bug report as I would have choosen the same
title, even though the steps/behavior aren't the same.

Earlier today I have reported bug #805132
(https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=805132) with title
"glx-alternative-nvidia:amd64 installs update-glx:armhf as dependency".
As you can see by the title the arch where a package came from is
critical, but especially that info was missing from the Package list
section. The relevant part of that bug report (for this bug):

Versions of packages glx-alternative-nvidia depends on:
ii  glx-alternative-mesa  0.7.1
ii  glx-diversions        0.7.1
ii  update-glx            0.7.1

The maintainer of that package was able to confirm this behavior.
