apport 2.1-0ubuntu1 source package in Ubuntu

Changelog

apport (2.1-0ubuntu1) quantal; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - packaging.py, install_packages(): Add permanent_rootdir flag and if set,
      only unpack newly downloaded packages. Implement it for the apt/dpkg
      backend. Thanks Evan Dandrea.
    - apport-retrace: Add --sandbox-dir option for keeping a permanent sandbox
      (unpacked packages). This provides a considerable speedup. Thanks Evan
      Dandrea.
    - crash-digger: Add --sandbox-dir option and pass it to apport-retrace.
    - Fix the whole code to be PEP-8 compatible, and enforce this in test/run
      by running the "pep8" tool.
    - GTK UI tests: Ensure that there are no GLib/GTK warnings or criticals.
    - Support Python 3. Everything except the launchpad crashdb backend now
      works with both Python 2 and 3. An important change is that the load(),
      write(), and write_mime() methods of a ProblemReport and apport.Report
      object now require the file stream to be opened in binary mode.
    - data/apport: Ignore a crash if the executable was modified after the
      process started. This often happens if the package is upgraded and a
      long-running process is not stopped before. (LP: #984944)
    - Add test cases for apport-unpack.
    - apport-retrace: Add information about outdated packages to the
      "RetraceOutdatedPackages" field.
    - ui.py: Drop python-xdg dependency, use ConfigParser to read the .desktop
      files.
    - apport-gtk: Work around GTK crash when trying to set pixmap on an
      already destroyed parent window. (LP: #938090)
    - data/dump_acpi_tables.py: Fix crash on undefined variable with
      non-standard tables. (LP: #982267)
    - backends/packaging-apt-dpkg.py: Fix crash if a package is installed, but
      has no candidates in apt. (LP: #980094)
    - data/general-hooks/generic.py: Bump minimum free space requirement from
      10 to 50 MB. 10 is not nearly enough particularly for /tmp. (LP: #979928)
    - hookutils.py, recent_logfile(): Use a default limit of 10000 lines and
      call "tail" instead of reading the whole file. This protects against
      using up all memory when there are massive repeated log messages.
      (LP: #984256)
    - apport-gtk: Do not assume that an icon requested for size 42 actually
      delivers size 42; some themes do not have this available and deliver a
      smaller one instead, causing overflows. Also, copy the image as
      gtk_icon_theme_load_icon() returns a readonly result which we must not
      modify. (LP: #937249)
    - ui.py: Don't show the duplicate warning when the crash database does not
      accept the problem type, and they are just being sent to whoopsie.
      Thanks Evan Dandrea. (LP: #989779)
    - report.py: Correctly escape the file path passed to gdb.
    - apport-gtk, apport-kde: Do not show the information collection progress
      dialog if the crash database does not accept this kind of report. In that
      case whoopsie will upload it in the background and the dialog is not
      necessary.  (LP: #989698)
  * data/general-hooks/ubuntu.py, data/general-hooks/automatix.py: Support
    Python 3.
