apport 1.94-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (1.94-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * New upstream release:
    - apport: Set the group of written reports to "whoopsie" if that group
      exists.
    - Fix tests to run properly against the system-installed modules and
      binaries.
    - test/run: Run under LC_MESSAGES=C to avoid test failures due to
      translated strings.
    - general-hooks/generic.py: Also attach xsession-errors for programs that
      link to libgtk-3.
    - launchpad.py: Properly handle "Expired" status, to avoid marking new
      bugs as duplicates of expired ones. (LP: #941854)
    - apport: Fix crash if the "whoopsie" group does not exist. (LP: #942326)
    - report.py, crash_signature(): Do not put "<module>" frames into Python
      crash signatures that happen outside of function/method calls. Fall back
      to the file/line number as a frame description instead. This will do a
      much better job at disambiguating e. g. different ImportError crashes.
      (LP: #920403)
    - Make "binary changed since the time of the crash" error message more
      comprehensible, thanks Paolo Rotolo. (LP: #942830)
    - crashdb.py, check_duplicate(): It can happen that a bug gets identified
      as being a duplicate of bug S by symbolic signatures and a duplicate of
      bug A by address signatures. Empirical evidence shows that this is due
      to the unavoidable jitter in stack traces (A and S not being identified
      as duplicates as their signatures differ slightly) and not a logic
      error. So instead of erroring out, duplicate all three bugs and keep the
      lowest number as the master ID. (LP: #943117)
    - Revert the usage of multiple nested threads during data collection, and
      switch back to only using one UI thread. The UI implementations can, and
      now do, decide between showing a spinner and showing a progress dialog
      in the ui_*_info_collection_progress() methods. This fixes libX11
      crashes when multiple UI threads do changes concurrently (LP: #901675),
      and also avoids multi-thread induced crashes in Pango (LP: #943661). The
      removal of the collect() method also fixes the new crashes in it.
      (LP: #942098, #939803)
    - ui.py, get_desktop_entry(): Fix crash on uninstalled package.
      (LP: #940984)
    - data/unkillable_shutdown: Fix crash on race condition when PID goes away
      while the report is created. (LP: #546369)
    - apport/hookutils.py, pci_devices(): Fix crash on unexpected lines from
      lspci. (LP: #904489)
    - Drop hardcoded "Ubuntu" words again which crept in with the whoopsie
      support merge. Use the DistroRelease: field.
    - apport-kde: Fix Home page URL in KApplication metadata.
    - apport-gtk: Fix resizability and size after hiding details.
      (LP: #405418)
    - test/run: Drop "local" argument. This now tests against the source tree
      when run in the source tree root, and against the system
      libraries/programs when run from anywhere else.
    - test/run: Consider command line arguments as test names and only run
      those when given. Also support just running a single test.
    - testsuite: Force the skipping of online tests when $SKIP_ONLINE_TESTS is
      set.
    - hookutils.py, xsession_errors(): Add a reasonable default pattern which
      matches glib-style warnings, errors, criticals etc. and X window errors.
      In data/general-hooks/generic.py, call it with that default instead of
      the rather incomplete custom pattern. (LP: #932660)
    - packaging.py: Add get_package_origin() method, and implement it for
      apt-dpkg.
    - report.py, add_package_info(): Add "[origin: ...]" tag to "Package" and
      "Dependencies" fields for any package which is not native to the
      distribution. If any such package is present, tag the report with
      "third-party-packages" in data/general-hooks/generic.py. (LP: #927912)
    - apport/packaging.py: Add get_uninstalled_package() method as a helper
      method for the test suite. Use it instead of a hardcoded Debian/Ubuntu
      specific name in test/test_hooks.py.
    - test/test_ui_{gtk,kde}.py: Add test cases for complete UI workflow runs
      for reporting a bug against an installed/uninstalled package, and
      reporting a crash with and without showing details. This reproduces the
      recent crashes like LP #901675 or LP #943661.
    - test_ui.py: Add a test case for reporting a complete report on
      uninstalled package. This happens when reporting a problem from a
      different machine through copying a .crash file.
    - test/run: Add a test that there are no hardcoded "Ubuntu" words in the
      source. The code should use the DistroRelease: field or lsb_release.
  * debian/apport-retrace.install: Ship crash-digger. There is no reason any
    more not to, as it's now very easy to set up a retracer bot environment.
  * debian/apport.install: Install crash.{class,jar} into test suite
    directory, so that the test_java_crashes.py test can run.
  * debian/control: Tighten dependencies to ensure that we don't run a newer
    UI package against an older python-apport, which would cause crashes due
    to API mismatches. (LP: #939702)
  * Drop test/test_backend_rpm.py, as we also drop the RPM backend in the
    Ubuntu branch.
  * debian/rules: Update test suite invocation, the "local" argument is
    obsolete.

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * data/package-hooks/source_linux.py: add in ProcFB

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-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).
