[Reportbug-maint] Bug#890793: reportbug: when body-file is given the newbie template added to the body

Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.6
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When using these options:
reportbug --mode=novice --no-query-bts --no-config-files --no-check-available \
    --no-debconf --no-check-installed --no-cc-menu --no-tags-menu --no-verify \
reportbug always prepends the newbie template to body-file.

I think it is an 'if' in bugreport.py

Please consider not adding that template when body-file is specified.
