Description Matt T. Proud 2005-10-09 12:52:20 EDT
Description of problem:
This bug has just been filed under this component, because I remember this 
utility crashing considerably during system installations; but the concept 
should apply to all of Fedora's Python-power utilities.

When a Python-powered Fedora configuration utility crashes, it just gives one 
the option the debug or to examine a backtrace. It might be useful if, upon a 
crash, the application could use some mechanism similar to GNOME's Bugbuddy 
infrastructure to allow for bug reporting, including the backtrace and useful 
variables, back to the Fedora project.

Additional info:
If this would help cut-down on the number of spurious problems encountered in 
the configuration utilities, great; it is necessary for the project.

Opera had an oops.
