reports bugs in the Debian distribution

reportbug is a tool designed to make the reporting of bugs in Debian and derived distributions relatively painless. Its features include:

 * Integration with many mail user agents.
 * Access to outstanding bug reports to make it easier to identify
   whether problems have already been reported.
 * Automatic checking for newer versions of packages.
 * Optional automatic verification of integrity of packages via debsums.
 * Support for following-up on outstanding reports.
 * Optional PGP/GnuPG integration.

Bug reporting in Debian relies on email; reportbug can use a local mail transport agent (like exim or sendmail), submit directly through an external mail server, or pass messages to an installed mail user agent (e.g., mutt) for submission.

This package also includes the "querybts" script for browsing the Debian bug tracking system.
