Package: debconf
Version: 1.5.24
Severity: wishlist
File: /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure

On the man page mention how to just print the current choices to stdout.
Currently one must do things like
# su nobody -c 'reportbug --template console-data'|fgrep \*

Also add a FILES section saying where the selections are stored. Also
do so for those other man pages that lack it.
