Hmm I'd be happy to, but I'm not sure where I'd put the request.  For
example, I'd be surprised if many of the people submitting bugs
actually read the Emacs bug reporting documentation before submitting
a bug to bugs.debian.org.

However, what I can certainly do is either try and collect that
information from them before forwarding a bug report, or help you
collect that information in cases where it's needed.  If I can
reproduce the bug on my system (and I normally want to be able to
reproduce a bug before forwarding it), I can just include the
report-emacs-bug information from my system.

Those are the Debian revisions of the Emacs 21 package.  i.e. we have
emacs21 21.1-1, 21.1-2, 21.1-3, etc., as I fix packaging bugs or other
problems for a given upstream release.

Also bear in mind that anytime you're dealing with a Debian Emacs bug
report, the Emacs in question will have had some Debian specific
modifications, and in some (hopefully rare) cases, those may be the
source of the problem.

It's my goal to minimize the number of Debian specific patches to the
upstream source over time, but there may well always be some.

Hope this helps.
