Generally I encourage all users of Debian to file bugreports at Debian.

I second this.

Just make sure to mention anything unusual about the installed system.

Seems useful. Maybe Glenn could ship a custom /etc/reportbug.conf, adding something like X-AV-Linux: $VERSION

I don't know if it's too much work, and I guess we can derive the use of AVLinux from the fact that some libs or packages might be called -avlinux (the list at the bottom of a bug report)

Well, it would be nice with such hint but really I don't see the need: Instead of trying to encourage redistributors to derive even further from Debian by hinting explicitly, I would prefer if we all - Debian users, redistributors and anyone else helping other users with e.g. adding backports.org or in other ways "distort" systems from using Debian the way it was tested to be used - clearly tell such users that if/when they later run into problems with their systems they are better off to a) report back to the mothership but also b) clearly mentions how they are off of the mainstream usage pattern, e.g. by simply mentioning which derivative distribution or what mixin repository they've used.
