Specifically, gnus-bug assigns the bug to both packages gnus and emacs,
whereas report-emacs-bug assigns it only to the emacs package.

The former is more useful for bug search and triage purposes, but the
latter includes more information about Emacs' state, so I think TRT
would be to make gnus-bug exactly like report-emacs-bug, except that it
also assigns the bug to the gnus package.

Now that Gnus is distributed with Emacs, I also think the
X-Debbugs-Version should be set to the version of Emacs, not Gnus.

While we're on the topic, can someone please have a look at bug#35239?
I think it's a pretty straightforward change and would like to push it
