;; Introduction
;; ============
;; This program is for lisp package authors and is used to ease
;; reporting of bugs. When invoked, reporter-submit-bug-report will
;; set up a mail buffer with the appropriate bug report address,
;; including a lisp expression the maintainer of the package can use
;; to completely reproduce the environment in which the bug was
;; observed (e.g. by using eval-last-sexp). This package is especially
;; useful for my development of c++-mode.el, which is highly dependent
;; on its configuration variables.
;; Do a "C-h f reporter-submit-bug-report" for more information.
;; Here's an example usage:
;; (defconst mypkg-version "9.801")
;; (defconst mypkg-maintainer-address "")
;; (defun mypkg-submit-bug-report ()
;; "Submit via mail a bug report on mypkg"
;; (interactive)
;; (require 'reporter)
;; (and (y-or-n-p "Do you really want to submit a report on mypkg? ")
;; (reporter-submit-bug-report
;; mypkg-maintainer-address
;; (concat "mypkg.el " mypkg-version)
;; (list 'mypkg-variable-1
;; 'mypkg-variable-2
;; ;; ...
;; 'mypkg-variable-last))))
;; Mailing List
;; ============
;; I've set up a mailing list to report bugs or suggest enhancements,
;; etc. This list's intended audience is elisp package authors who are
;; using reporter and want to stay current with releases. Here are the
;; relevent addresses:

be a variable symbol, or a cons cell. If a symbol, this will be
passed to `reporter-dump-variable' for insertion into the mail buffer.
If a cons cell, the car must be a variable symbol and the cdr must be
a function which will be `funcall'd with the symbol. Use this to write
your own custom variable value printers for specific variables.
