“apport” 0.103 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (0.103) hardy; urgency=low

  * bin/apport-unpack: Print error messages instead of crashing for problems
    like nonexisting file names passed as arguments. (LP: #185273)
  * backends/packaging-apt-dpkg.py, is_distro_package(): Explicitly check site
    for "ppa", so that we do not automatically file bugs for PPA packages.
    This works around Soyuz bug LP #140412 for the time being.
  * apport/report.py: Add standard_title() test cases for Python crashes with
    a custom message, and a custom message with newlines. The latter
    reproduces LP #190947.
  * apport/report.py, standard_title(): Do not rely on a fixed position of the
    topmost function; use iteration and regular expression matching instead.
    (LP: #190947)
  * apport/ui.py, parse_argv(): Specify that --pid/-P argument must be an
    integer, to avoid exceptions when it's not. (LP: #193494)
  * apport/report.py: Use uname -srm, not -a, to hide the hostname. (part of
    LP #192786); also use os.uname() instead of calling the system program.
  * problem_report.py(): Make write() work for reports with CompressedValues.
    Add test case.
  * apport/ui.py: Add test case test_run_crash_anonymity() which asserts that
    the crash dump does not contain strings which can identify the user, such
    as the user name, login name, host name, and current directory.
  * apport/report.py: Add method anonymize() which replaces user specific
    strings with generic ones.
  * apport/ui.py, thread_collect_info(): Call anonymize() on the report.
    (LP: #192786)
  * bin/apport-retrace: Only update a bug report with new attachments if it is
    not a duplicate. (LP: #172792)
  * bin/apport-retrace: Print out proper error message instead of an exception
    if trying to do write operations to the bug tracker without specifying
    a cookie file. (LP: #146423)

Binary packages built by this source

apport: automatically generate crash reports for debugging

 apport automatically collects data from crashed processes and
 compiles a problem report in /var/crash/. This utilizes the crashdump
 helper hook provided by the Ubuntu kernel.
 .
 This package also provides a command line frontend for browsing and
 handling the crash reports. For desktops, you should consider
 installing the GTK+ or Qt user interface (apport-gtk or apport-qt).
 .
 See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AutomatedProblemReports for more
 information.

apport-retrace: tools for reprocessing Apport crash reports

 apport-retrace recombines an Apport crash report (either a file or a
 Launchpad bug) and debug symbol packages (.ddebs) into fully symbolic
 stack traces.
 .
 This package also ships apport-chroot. This tool can create and
 manage chroots for usage with apport-retrace. If the fakeroot and
 fakechroot libraries are available (either by installing the packages
 or by merely putting their libraries somewhere and setting two
 environment variables), the entire process of retracing crashes in
 chroots can happen with normal user privileges.

python-apport: apport crash report handling library

 This Python package provides high-level functions for creating and
 handling apport crash reports:
 .
  * Query available and new reports.
  * Add OS, packaging, and process runtime information to a report.
  * Various frontend utility functions.
  * Python hook to generate crash reports when Python scripts fail.

python-problem-report: Python library to handle problem reports

 This Python library provides an interface for creating, modifying,
 and accessing standardized problem reports for program and kernel
 crashes and packaging bugs (for details, see
 https://wiki.ubuntu.com/AutomatedProblemReports).
 .
 These problem reports use standard Debian control format syntax
 (RFC822).
