Welcome to reportbug! Since it looks like this is the first time you have used reportbug, we are configuring its behavior. These settings will be saved to the file "/home/shirish/.reportbugrc", which you will be free to edit further.</code>
Please choose the default operating mode for reportbug.
1 novice Offer simple prompts, bypassing technical questions.
2 standard Offer more extensive prompts, including asking about things that a moderately sophisticated user would be expected to know about Debian.
3 advanced Like standard, but assumes you know a bit more about Debian, including "incoming".</code>

Do you have a "mail transport agent" (MTA) like Exim, Postfix or SSMTP configured on this computer to send mail to the Internet? [y|N|q|?]?n
Please enter the name of your SMTP host. Usually it's called something like "mail.example.org" or "smtp.example.org". If you need to use a different port than default, use the : alternative format. Just press ENTER if you don't have one or don't know, and so a Debian SMTP host will be used.
>
Please enter the name of your proxy server. It should only use this parameter if you are behind a firewall. The PROXY argument should be formatted as a valid HTTP URL, including (if necessary) a port number; for example, http://192.168.1.1:3128/. Just press ENTER if you don't have one or don't know.
