[Reportbug-maint] Bug#856431: reportbug: "x - Provide extra information" should Cc the bug submitter

Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.5
Severity: normal


When running e.g. reportbug -N xyz and selecting

x - Provide extra information.

only xyz at bugs.debian.org is set as recipient,
xyz-submitter at bugs.debian.org is not. That is not what people expect to
happen, they expect to be sharing their experience with other reporters.
So I'd say reportbug should put xyz-submitter at bugs.debian.org in Cc.
