Description Karel Zak 2013-09-09 10:56:21 UTC
Description of problem:

For example bug #1005566 summary line:

 [abrt] util-linux-2.23.2-2.fc19: recount_geometry: Process /usr/sbin/fdisk was killed by signal 8 (SIGFPE)

is horribly long and contains unnecessary (duplicate information).

 - package name (NVR) is unnecessary as we have "component" field in BZ
 - "Process" word is unnecessary as it's obvious from the path

It would be nice to have summary lines like:

 [abrt] recount_geometry: /usr/sbin/fdisk was killed by SIGFPE

or ideally:

  [abrt] fdisk:recount_geometry() killed by SIGFPE

All another information and details belong to the bug description. 

Please, keep the summary field brief!
