Description Martin Kyral 2013-09-17 08:33:19 EDT
Description of problem:
libreport can read the bugzilla and strata configuration from /etc/libreport/plugins/{bugzilla,rhtsupport}.conf or from environment variables. It would be useful if it would read user's configuration also from ~/.libreport/plugins/{bugzilla,rhtsupport}.conf

The priority of the configuration shall be environment -> user's home -> global.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create ~/.libreport/plugins/{bugzilla,rhtsupport}.conf with the correct configuration and leave the /etc/libreport/plugins/{bugzilla,rhtsupport}.conf configuration empty
2. try to report to BZ/strata using the report command

Actual results:
error: Empty RHTS login or password

Expected results:
report succeeds
