    SYNOPSIS

           /etc/reportbug.conf  -  The configuration file for reportbug, a program
           designed to report bugs in the Debian distribution
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           This manual page describes the layout of  the  reportbug  and  querybts
           configuration  file  and  the  available  configuration  options.   The
           default location of the file is /etc/reportbug.conf and the options may
           be  overriding  in $HOME/.reportbugrc (which follows the same format as
           reportbug.conf).
    
           Please note that any configuration file has to be a valid  UTF-8  docu-
           ment,  and not in a different locale; this is particularly important in
           situations where localized characters has to be used  (like  for  real-
           name).
    
    
    

    FILE FORMAT

           Configuration options can be specified in the form
    
           option-name option-value

           boolean-option
    
           (if it's present, it's a True).
    
           Usually, no-option will disable option if option is boolean.
    
           Options can be specified in any order.
