I think this should now optdepend on sensible-editor instead of the whole suite of sensible-utils. (The latter, formerly unified package has been split into subpackages.)

Looks like I've been made maintainer of this package… I guess the maintainer quit. I've rewritten the package and it's now up to date with proper dependencies.

@tuxayo, I have now packaged python-debianbts so there are no more missing dependencies. However, the package is out of date and thus the source no longer exists. It's changed a lot since 2017, so updating it would almost be a rewrite. To get the package to build with the old version, you can change the source to the latest Debian Snapshot with this version of the package still available:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index 162251a..c3aebd5 100644

Can't build due to python-debianbts missing a dependency.

man pages should be included now (reportbug, querybts and reportbug.conf) I also added /etc/reportbug.conf. I personally never needed that file. I have all my settings in ~/.reportbugrc created by "reportbug --configure".

Please, could you set-up the man pages like the debian package? Thanks for your work!

Ah okay, searching for EDITOR and things is exactly what sensible-utils is doing.

If reportbug complains that "sensible-pager" is not found (when opening tickets): just "ln -s /usr/bin/less ~/bin/sensible-pager". (If ~/bin is in your PATH). Same for "sensible-editor". I have mine set to "/usr/bin/vim". You can also install No clue how these are set there, though. I also have no clue why $EDITOR etc. are not used.
