[Reportbug-maint] Bug#873852: No shortcut for debian-installer

Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.7
Severity: normal
Tags: d-i


I tried to report a bug in the debian installer with reportbug. Doing
this with "Joe user attitude", not looking for the actual virtual
package name and other resources. I tried:

reportbug install
reportbug installer
reportbug (and then selecting other and looking for debian-installer in the list)

None of those pretty obvious methods leads me to do what I want, file a
bug against debian-installer.

I think this is a UX problem and should be improved in future.

Best regards,
