I didn't even realize that Ubuntu *had* the reportbugs program. I
thought that was *exclusively* Debian.  Their BTS is *completely*
different than Ubuntu's has ever been (be it Bugzilla or Malone).

I've never heard mention of it in Ubuntu till now.

I guess I need to get out more.

Come to think of it, there are several other "Debian-only" packages in
the Ubuntu archive. And as one would expect, they'd worthless in Ubuntu.

I find this all quite odd.

And lastly, with regard to bugs going to this list.

*Every* single package description I've read includes a line that reads.

"Bugs: mailto:ubuntu-users at".  I've been meaning to
question that for some time now.  I first noticed it in Dapper (and
possibly Breezy).

Ubuntu. Linux for human beings.
   at least somewhat computer-savvy
