Reporting issues for debian packages.

Having spotted a minor issue with package gccintro i wanted to report it.
In irc #devuan i was told that this package is debian one.
So as we see in Devuan Package Information on gccintro
https://pkginfo.devuan.org/cgi-bin/pack … ntro=1.0-4
the filename contains a link to http://deb.debian.org/ .

Using reportbug in my devuan system i sent the report that appeared here:
https://bugs.devuan.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=654
And in the Devuan Bug page on gccintro
https://bugs.devuan.org/cgi/pkgreport.c … e=gccintro
it says:

There is no maintainer for gccintro. This means that this package no longer exists (or never existed). Please do not report new bugs against this package.

It seems to me that in the case of a debian package from withing a devuan system
if i wanted to report issues i should to by email only and not from reportbug.
If that is the case i wonder if it would be more convinient reportbug to do that for me
(sent that email).

Re: Reporting issues for debian packages.

I think i found the answer in https://bugs.devuan.org/Reporting.html

reportbug can also be used to report bugs in unforked packages directly to Debian's BTS. See the --bts option. If you don't have an SMTP smarthost available, you may also need the --smtphost option.

Re: Reporting issues for debian packages.

Ok, finally i managed to send the bugreport to debian by :
$ reportbug --bts debian
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo … ug=1003831

But i think it would be more user friendly :-)  reportbug to handle that , because now the sender must
crosscheck for if the package s(he) reports for is unforked and imported from debian

Re: Reporting issues for debian packages.

i am getting the issue when trying to report via reportbug

Connecting to mx.devuan.org via SMTP...
SMTP send failure: {'submit@bugs.devuan.org': (450, b'4.7.25 Client host
rejected: cannot find your hostname, [151.62.21.30]')}. You can retry, or save
the report and exit. Do you want to retry [Y|n|q|?]?

Looks like you're not configured  SMTP or it is unavailable. If so, you may also need the --smtphost option.

reportbug --smtphost

What economists call over-production is but a production that is above the purchasing power of the worker, who is reduced to poverty by capital and state.

Re: Reporting issues for debian packages.

@ogis1975, thanks, but the reportbug states

Do you have a "mail transport agent" (MTA) like Exim, Postfix or SSMTP
configured on this computer to send mail to the Internet [y|N|q|?]?
Please enter the name of your SMTP host. Usually it's called something like
"mail.example.org" or "smtp.example.org". If you need to use a different port
than default, use the <host>:<port> alternative format. Just press ENTER if you
don't have one or don't know, and so a Devuan SMTP host will be used.

this should function without any configuration, or am i wrong?

Re: Reporting issues for debian packages.

Seems devuan bugs MX doesnt accept mail without proper hostname (PTR). Maybe debian accepts mail from senders without proper hostname and devuan just copied the reportbug message without adjusting(?). i' suggest configuring smtp using msmtp or any other smtp, or just copy bug report to a regular email and send...

Re: Reporting issues for debian packages.

Reportbug 11.4.0devuan2 changelog has:

Offer to send bugs in unforked packages directly to Debian, but still default to Devuan. (Closes: #656)
