Package: reportbug
Version: 7.1.7
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

$ man reportbug
 -i FILE, --include=FILE
  Include the specified FILE as part of the body of the message to
  be  edited.   Can  be used multiple times to add multiple files;
  text-only please!  From a suggestion by Michael Alan  Dorman  in
  the bug mailing list.  (See also the -a/--attach option.)

However -a doesn't exist in the manpage. --attach goes with -A.
