NAMEConfig::Model::models::Dpkg::BugFiles::Control - Configuration class Dpkg::BugFiles::Control
DESCRIPTIONConfiguration classes used by Config::Model
report-withOften programs are distributed across several different packages, for example an upstream package 'foo' may be packaged in Debian as foo, libfoo, foo-common and foo-data. In such cases it can be useful to include related package information in bugreports, to minimise the need for 'moreinfo' requests to the submitter :) This is done by adding a ``report-with'' header to the control file::
report-with: foo libfoo foo-common foo-data
Package information will be added to the bug report for each extra package listed.
package-statusrequest that the status information for other packages (that are not dependencies or recommendations) be included with the report.
Submit-AsThe package maintainer can control to which packages bug reports are submitted, by setting the Package: field of the bug report. This will be mainly used to redirect bugs in packages coming from a single source to where the maintainer likes to have them. See
Send-ToPackages not distributed by Debian can take advantage of reportbug utility too with this parameter. For instance:
``reportbug`` will add ``submit@` ``quiet@`` or ``maintonly@`` to form the address the bug report mail is send to.
(Note: you probably should use dpkg's support for Origin and Bugs tags in lieu of this support.)
