Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.3
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

The documentation in doc/README.source seems to be outdated. For example, it

 31 * Internal checking framework
 33   * ``checks/`` contains various scripts that ensure reportbug's
 34     internals are up-to-date with the Debian BTS.
 36 * Internationalisation and localisation
 38   * ``po4a/`` contains configuration and data for localisation of
 39     source files using the ``po4a`` tool.

However, there is no directory named "checks" or "po4a" in the source code.
Could you please update it?

% apt-get source reportbug
% cd reportbug-6.6.3

% find . -iname '*po4a*' | wc -l

% find . -iname '*checks*' | wc -l
