Description of problem:
There is a default system-wide configuration of enabled plugins in /etc/abrt/abrt.conf. Uses can modify this via abrt-gui's preferences dialog (register/unregister plugins). But those user changes are not stored in any config file and are lost during service restarts.
Take for example two users, one have configured bugzilla plugin, one does not. Currently, depending on system-wide configuration, either both have bugzilla enabled (and one gets error messages) or both have bugzilla disabled or they have to alter their preferences all the time to get the desired behaviour.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run abrt-gui, disable an enabled plugin via edit->preferences
2. restart abrt service
3. run abrt-gui again, check the status of the plugin
It's re-enabled again.
Having user-specific plugin configuration probably doesn't make sense for any but reporter-type plugins. Those could be stored in ~/.abrt/abrt.conf and registerd/unregistered upon abrt-gui startup.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
