[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Severity: normal

I tried to file a bug against the firejail source package, about not
being able to unpack the source package. I filed it against the source
package, using the Source pseudo-header but it was rejected with an
error saying that the Package pseudo-header Package is required. The
bug only affects the source package, not the binary package so it
doesn't make sense to file it against the source package.

This is the error message I got:

> Your message didn't have a Package: line at the start (in the
> pseudo-header following the real mail header), or didn't have a
> pseudo-header at all.

I've attached the full mail I got.
