No need for a multiline field. If we agree that the field, by convention, can contain one rpm name (common case) or more, separated by commas for example, then it wont add complexity over the initial proposal from Ahmad and would still allow people to flag more RPMs if they want.

From the bug solving point of view, this would not add much benefit, but for users it may bring some useful information, for example in mageia-app-db. Indeed, like it was said earlier, if the problem shows in package A but is in fact a bug in package B, it's still useful to have package A mentioned so that we can say, on the package's page in mageia-app-db "Hey, there's a known open bug for this package".
