Description Dan Horák 2010-07-08 10:03:47 UTC
A typical system is usually installed from multiple repositories - Fedora, RPM Fusion and also some 3rd party additional repos. It would be nice if ABRT could report crashes for packages from all the repositories.

- source of package => determined from gpg signing key
- the gpg key is part of <foo>-release package, where foo = {rhel, fedora, rpmfusion, whatever}
- each <foo>-release (or an -abrt subpackage) will provide information what plugin/plugins is/are used for reporting and a default setup like URL of bugzilla, etc.

The workflow will be then
- detect crash
- get package from crashing application
- get repository for package
- get reporting config for repository
- report

Naturally there will be a fallback configuration for situations where crash doesn't belong to any package or when repository doesn't have its own config.

We never implement this feature, because you cannot report it into redhat bugzilla. Why? TGood example is mplayer from rpmfusion. Bugzilla doesn't have component called bugzilla so it fails.

Comment 2 Jiri Moskovcak 2010-07-08 11:40:12 UTC
It is in our plan to implement this feature. Nikola replied before I had a chance to talk to him and he probably misunderstood the description...

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

I thought I would mention it here first, but I can file another bug if it makes sense.  I just got some bug reports for packages installed from the SUSE openbuild server filed against my Fedora packages of the same name.  We need to make sure that the packages actually came from Fedora.
