apport 1.25-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (1.25-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - Add new response "Examine locally" to presenting the report details,
      which runs apport-retrace in the chosen mode in a terminal. This should
      be made available for crash reports if apport-retrace and a Terminal
      application are installed; add an abstrace UI method for this.
      (LP: #75901)
    - apport-gtk: Add "Examine locally..." button, and implement
      ui_run_terminal().
    - apport-cli: Add "Examine locally..." responses, and implement
      ui_run_terminal().
    - apport-cli: Greatly speed up displaying large reports. This also changes
      the format to avoid indenting each line with a space, and visually set
      apart the keys in a better way.
    - apport_python_hook.py: Move tests out of this file into test/python, to
      avoid having to parse the unit tests at each Python startup.
    - test/python: Also make tests work if Python hook is not installed in
      system's sitecustomize.py.
    - packaging.py: Add get_modified_conffiles() API, and implement it in
      packaging-apt-dpkg.py.
    - hookutils.py: Add attach_conffiles().
    - hookutils.py: Add attach_upstart_overrides().
    - launchpad.py: Remove "Ubuntu" in bug response, replace with "this
      software". (LP: #883234)
    - apport-kde: Rearrange order of imports to get intended error message if
      PyKDE is not installed.
    - packaging-apt-dpkg.py: Ignore hardening-wrapper diversions, to make
      gcc_ice_hook work if hardening-wrapper is installed.
    - apport_python_hook: Respect $APPORT_REPORT_DIR.
    - apport_python_hook: Limit successive crashes per program and user to 3
      per day, just like signal crashes. (LP: #603503)
    - packaging-apt-dpkg.py: Skip online tests when there is no default route.
    - ui.py: Fix test suite to not fail if system has some obsolete or
      non-distro packages.

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-kde).

apport-gtk: GTK+ frontend for the apport crash report system

 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.

apport-kde: KDE frontend for the apport crash report system

 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 provides a KDE frontend for browsing and handling the
 crash reports.

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 can optionally use a sandbox for installing debug symbol
 packages and doing the processing, so that entire process of retracing crashes
 can happen with normal user privileges without changing the system.

dh-apport: debhelper extension for the apport crash report system

 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 provides a debhelper extension to make it easier for other
 packages to include apport hooks.

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.
 .
 These problem reports use standard Debian control format syntax
 (RFC822).
