I can try. It wasn't the latest version of systemd though, so may be it was already addressed in the later ones.

Also, Debian bug reporting system often puts me off even when I really want to file a bug. I wish Debian had a normal bug tracker. Why doesn't Debian use one?

What's a "normal" bug tracker?

I love Debian's bug tracker. It's fantastic; I don't have to create Yet Another Pointless One-Shot Bug Reporting Account to report a single bug.

That's subjective, but for example I don't want to be required to configure an SMPT server to report a bug. Especially when being behind a firewall.

Why do you need to configure a SMTP server? All you need to be able to do is send an e-mail to the bug tracker (from anywhere!) and include a "Package: foo" and "Version: 1.2.3" line at the top of the the body. Anything else, such as using the reportbug tool directly on the system with the problem, is useful, but certainly not necessary.

Also note that reportbug doesn't require an SMTP server these days anyway; it can send mail directly to the BTS's SMTP server.

And, for "yet another pointless account" - there are services like Mozilla Persona.

That's not 2 exclusive things, you could also receive bug reports by mail with bugzilla, or have a webinterface with the dbts.

There is the 'reportbug' tool which you can use to report a bug in a Debian package.

It's not the tool that is the problem for me, it's the whole system and its usability. I find bugtrackers like one of Mozilla or KDE for example to be much more user friendly.

That must be the first time anyone has called Bugzilla user friendly. Ever. It is terrifying.
