Package: reportbug
Version: 6.6.4
Severity: important

With this version of reportbug, the "debian-bug" command in Emacs
(from the debian-el package) is broken.  Regardless of the package to
report a bug for, reportbug prints a backtrace instead of the package

|   File "/usr/bin/reportbug", line 760, in verify_append_option
|     elif value in valid:
| TypeError: argument of type 'function' is not iterable

Downgrading reportbug (and python-reportbug) to version 6.6.3 fixes this.
