Reporting bugs in Debian

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

reportbug is designed to be used on systems with an installed mail transport agent, like exim or sendmail; however, you can edit the configuration file and send reports using any available mail server.

If your system's users use ["locale"]s with character sets other than ["UTF-8"] and ["ISO-8859"]-*, one of either ["python"]2.3-cjkcodecs or python2.3-iconvcodec is required for proper operation. For Asian locales, the use of python2.3-cjkcodecs is preferred over the more limited python2.3-iconvcodec.

In control@bugs.debian.org there is a robot that expects specially-crafted control messages for the ["bug tracking system"] ["BTS"] .
