[Reportbug-maint] Bug#822691: reportbug: With Mutt 1.6, the -E option should be used so that the draft can really be saved

Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.6
Severity: minor

When the report is not sent, reportbug saves the draft, but with Mutt,
it currently only saves the template since by default, Mutt internally
makes a copy for the real message. To avoid this copy and get the real
draft saved, the -E option (added in Mutt 1.6) should be used in
addition to -H.

About the current reportbug behavior and the new option in Mutt, see:


which has just been closed (fixed in mutt/1.6.0-1).
