.TH REPORTBUG.CONF 5 "Dec 2007" "reportbug 3.39"
.SH NAME
.B reportbug.conf
- The configuration file for reportbug
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B /etc/reportbug.conf
- The configuration file for reportbug, a program designed to report bugs in the
Debian distribution
.hw config
.SH DESCRIPTION
This manual page describes the layout of the \fBreportbug\fP and
\fBquerybts\fP configuration file and the available configuration
options. The default location of the file is
\fB/etc/reportbug.conf\fP and the options may be overriding in
\fB$HOME/.reportbugrc\fP (which follows the same format as
\fBreportbug.conf\fP).
Please note that any configuration file has to be a valid UTF-8
document, and not in a different locale; this is particularly
important in situations where localized characters have to be used
(like for realname).
.SH "FILE FORMAT"
Configuration options can be specified in the form
\fBoption-name\fP \fIoption-value\fP
True/False (boolean) options can be specified as
\fBboolean-option\fP
(if it's present, it's a \fBTrue\fP).
Usually, \fBno-option\fP will disable \fBoption\fP if \fBoption\fP is
boolean.
Options can be specified in any order.
.SH OPTIONS
