apport 1.93-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (1.93-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream bug fix release:
    - apport-gtk: Fix crash on nonexisting icon. Thanks Evan Dandrea.
      (LP: #937354)
    - ui.py, open_url(): Revert back to calling sudo instead of dropping
      privileges ourselves; with the latter, calling firefox as the sudo'ing
      user fails. (LP: #916810, #938128)
    - ui.py: Fix aborting with "AssertionError" if the report is already
      known, but without an URL. (LP: #938778)
    - launchpad.py: If a bug is already known, but the report is private, do
      not send the report. There is little sense piling up lots of duplicates.
      (LP: #938700)
    - test/crash: Fix regression of test_crash_apport(), consider $TERM a
      non-sensitive variable.
    - ui.py: Fix test failures for data collection progress, they are not
      expected to happen for "ProblemType: Crash" any more (happens in the
      background during sending, or if user clicks on "Show Details").
    - test/hooks: Use a package from Debian/Ubuntu main, so that this works
      better during package builds on build servers.
    - test/python: Do not assume that /var/crash/ exists. Use /var/tmp/ for
      the fake binaries instead.
    - data/general-hooks/parse_segv.py: Fix test case name.
    - ui.py: Fix crash on invalid core dumps. (LP: #937215)
    - launchpad.py: Fix crash on unicode report titles. (LP: #896626)
    - apport-gtk: Show the most interesting fields first in the details view.
    - do-release: Call pyflakes and abort on errors other than unused imports.
    - Move all test suites out of the code modules into test/test_<module>.py.
      This avoids having to load it every time the program runs, and also
      allows running the tests against the installed version of Apport.
    - Clean up the other executable test script in test/* and change them to
      the same structure as the module tests.
  * debian/control: Add python-mock and GTK gir build dependencies for the
    gtk/kde tests.
  * debian/control: Add procps dependency to avoid a "command not found" error
    for killall in the ubuntu.py general hook during the test suite.
  * debian/control: Add missing python-gi dependency to apport-gtk.

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.
 .
 This package provides a GTK+ frontend for browsing and handling the
 crash reports.

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).
