apport-cli allows users to report bugs without a package which is not ideal. It might be a good idea to disallow this.

Debatable, certainly, but I agree that with our current bug flood it would be better to always specify a package.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 0.107

---------------
apport (0.107) hardy; urgency=low

  * cli/apport-cli: Add translator comment for difficult string. (LP: #210948)
  * Update German translations.
  * po/Make{vars,file}: Remove the --language=python option again, since it
    breaks extracting strings from the glade. intltool-update currently does
    not seem to have a way to tag a file as "language python", so add an ugly
    workaround: Create temporary .py symlinks for gtk/apport-gtk & friends,
    and have intltool extract them.
  * apport/ui.py: Disallow filing a bug without specifying a package or a PID.
    Update debian/local/ubuntu-bug.1 accordingly (apport-cli manpage was
    already correct). (LP: #210348)
