I think that accounts for everything. I can't figure out how to make
bug-buddy send its reports(I'm using Ubuntu). Sometimes I'm not sure
whether it has sent it or if it's just lost in my system somehow. I'm no
genius, but I should be able to make it work. I know nothing of sendmail,
and I shouldn't have to.

I'm sure it used to be a lot easier.
