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

 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).
