nailoraapport-gtk could display something like "hey there... unfortunately i was told that program you wanted to used has just crashed. you can file a bug report on launchpad (without proper retrace) by clicking *HERE*. there is a core file containing further info - click *HERE* to save it or *HERE* to retrace it (requires gdb and debug packages installed, but helps the ubuntu developers a lot)"00:01
BUGabundonailora: to much info for most of the users00:09
BUGabundoLP retracers are able to do 50% of the job00:09
bdmurrayBUGabundo: keep in mind only devel users would see that00:09
BUGabundoif it fails, then devs request powerfull users to debug it00:10
BUGabundoyes bdmurray, but still, after beta, *we* get common users, not advanced ones00:10
BUGabundoand apport still fires a but00:10
BUGabundo*bit00:10
imachineI actually think apport could be even easier, well, launchpad could.00:14
imachinesince it asks you about things at times like how would you describe a bug, etc., sometimes requiring a bit more professional a description, than the user can provide.00:14
imachineoverall it;s not bad, but it's confusing; but that seems more of a launchpad issue.00:15
BUGabundoimachine: that's why we have triage team00:15
BUGabundousers that go around those bugs, and ask (new) users what they need to do to improve the bug00:15
imachinek00:16
imachineyes, that's useful!00:16
imachineif it works and works good, it's np.00:16
nailorayou would have to think about it a bit. you could hide it in "advanced" section. however personally i would much more likely provide a properly retraced report if it was a one-click thing. ... right now i click "report bug" but if i had the chance i would let apport save the core, download&install the debug-packages and upload the generated backtrace. but until a few minutes ago i did not even know how to get a core to file to give to gdb 00:16
nailorathinking about the core files, i probably threw away quite a lot of good quality material00:17
nailorai think apport made it a lot easier to provide quite useful bug reports, but if it was just as easy to report even better reports that automatically include a proper retrace why would you want to NOT have this?00:18
imachinemore options confuse people. imho.00:22
andresmujicahi all, is there a way to automatically undupe some bugs and let them as they were at a certain date?  someone marked a bunch of BT bugs that i don't really see related between them..00:28
BUGabundoandresmujica: not that I know of. maybe ask in #launchpad or ML ?00:32
bdmurrayandresmujica: I could probably help with that.00:32
hggdhandresmujica, not automagically reverting the bugs to the previous state they were, no00:33

bdmurrayBut you could script unduping and invaliditing them.00:33
andresmujicamaybe i wrong or missing something but all the those bugs marked as dup aren't really dupes from that bug...00:33
andresmujicai'm unmarking manually.. at least the ones that seemed to be worked on..00:34
andresmujicaall were marked the 04/04/0900:34
bdmurrayandresmujica: were you going to wait for a response first?00:35
andresmujicawell , there are some that were worked at a different metabug, so i'm checking now those..00:36
andresmujicaand for the rest i'll wait.00:36
