Dear Ubuntu Audio Developers / Ubuntu Bug Control:

Hello. I am e-mailing to inquire about how one reports Ubuntu audio
bugs on Launchpad. As per
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingSoundProblems the requested method is
via a terminal:
ubuntu-bug audio

However, one is unable to do this, as per Marco Laverdière's (CC'ed)
below forwarded e-mail, and confirmed on my system:

lsb_release -rd
Description:	Ubuntu 12.10
Release:	12.10

apt-cache policy audio
N: Unable to locate package audio

apt-cache policy apport
   Installed: 2.6.1-0ubuntu6
   Candidate: 2.6.1-0ubuntu6
   Version table:
  *** 2.6.1-0ubuntu6 0
         900 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates/main i386 Packages
         100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
      2.6.1-0ubuntu3 0
         500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ quantal/main i386 Packages

Would this be a bug in apport?

Yes, probably.

I cannot reproduce it here though - on my Ubuntu 12.10 system "ubuntu-bug audio" and "apport-bug audio" work just fine.

Please file a bug against apport, as this *should* work.
