  on a ubuntu artful machine:

  1) install torbrowser-launcher from bionic(even though you are running

  2) ubuntu-bug torbrowser-launcher

  result:  ubuntu-bug refuses to send a bug report, claiming that it's a
  non-ubuntu, third party package

  full error message:
  "The problem cannot be reported:

  This is not an official Ubuntu package. Please remove any third 
  party package and try again"

  This is not strictly speaking true.  While it's a bionic version, not
  an artful version - it is a ubuntu version.

  expected behavior:

  * Failing to report the bug is more or less fine - but if it fails, it
  should fail with an acknowledgement that the user is trying to report
  a bug against a future version.


  * ubuntu-bug should allow the report of bugs with a 'future' version, so that 
people like myself who are testing bionic packages even in an unsupported setup 
can feed bug reports about those packages before they hit the mainstream ubuntu 
user.  That would make this bug probably a duplicate of other bugs like 
  if so.

  *this is the suggested workaround for the complete nonfunctional
  version in artful.
