Default Report python bug

Hi
I am using unstable and after an upgrade something broke and I want to send a
bugreport. I was going to use reportbug, but I am unsure which category to
put it in, that's why I am asking here.

I am using a python program called anki for learning Japanese vocabulary, but
now the program doesn't work well anymore because when I try to add words
which contains Japanese characters I get an error in the console from
sqlalchemy complaining about I'm not sending unicode strings as arguments to
some function call. But anki does use unicode, so the bug is not in anki. And
the upgrade that caused this didn't upgrade python-sqlalchemy that time, so I
guess it is not an error in python-sqlalchemy either. But there was a bunch
of python stuff that got upgraded and broke things.

So, could someone tell me what way is the best to report this with reportbug?
Which category and so on.

Thanks
Michael Brennan

How can you tell?

If you can't figure it out you can still report it against anki and the
maintainer will reassign as necessary.

Because I spoke to the author and I did some debugging to confirm that the
strings are indeed in unicode. I have also tried different versions of anki,
versions which used to work doesn't work anymore.

But you're right, even though it seems unlikely, it doesn't rule out that the
bug may be in anki.

Thanks! I'll do so.
