Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.7
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

Right now, I need to put up a subject each time I want to get the
system state of the package including depends, recommends in a compact
manner. It feels tedious to write the subject every time specifically
when I need to share the system state with upstream of a package. I
also did have a cursory look at bugs.debian.org/reportbug but couldn't
find any which talk about this issue as well as didn't find this
functionality in the manpage given.
