apport 2.0-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (2.0-0ubuntu1) precise; urgency=low

  * New upstream release: This is the final 2.0 release, featuring the
    overhauled and simplified GUI, support for whoopsie-daemon, and
    client-side duplicate checking.
    - report.py, anonymize(): Only replace whole words, not substrings.
      (LP: #966562)
    - apport_python_hook.py: Fix filtering of
      org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply exceptions. (LP: #958575)
    - crashdb.py: When publishing the crash database, cut hash file names
      after quoting, to avoid that the quoting causes them to become too long.
      (LP: #968070) This also uncovered that known() did not actually find any
      signature which contained an URL-quoted character, therefore breaking
      client-side duplicate checking in a lot of cases. Double-quote the file
      name now, as urlopen() unquotes it.
    - Add a new crash database option "problem_types" and a CrashDatabase
      method "accepts(report)". This can be used to stop uploading particular
      problem report types to that database. E. g. a distribution might decide
      to not get "Crash" reports any more after release.  Document the new
      option in doc/crashdb-conf.txt.
    - ui.py: Do not upload a report if the crash database does not accept the
      report's type. This behaviour is not really correct, but necessary as
      long as we only support a single crashdb and have whoopsie hardcoded.
      Once we have multiple crash dbs, we need to not even present the data if
      none of the DBs wants the report. See LP #957177 for details.
      (LP: #968121)
    - ui.py: Do not short-circuit information collection if report already has
      a "DistroRelease" field, as the GUIs add that in some cases. Check for
      "Dependencies" instead. This fixes information collection for kernel
      problems (which now has a full GTK GUI test case). (LP: #968488)
  * Merge from trunk:
    - test_ui_gtk.py: Disable package hooks for the tests, as they might ask
      for sudo passwords and other interactive bits, and thus make the tests
      hang.

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).
