using bug 702723 as an example..
there's a lot of duplicate information there with no extra value.
1. the 'Comment ------' text is superflous.
2. The 'package: kernel' is pointless text.
3. If the architecture is the same as the original filed bug, don't bother reporting it.
4. Likewise for the OS Release.
additionally, does abrt's comment box have a "this text will be filed in bugzilla" text ? If not, it should to dissuade people not to write garbage like "don't know" or "dakskmdlsamda"
Sorry for the "dakskmdlsamda" it was a testing bug, that I accidentally send to bz...
- the comment field is a problem - some wants it to be mandatory - mainly C/C++ app maintainers and others don't need it at all - kernel + python
This bug has two parts. First one and easy one is remove PACKAGE, ARCH, OS_RELEASE and COMPONENT from initial report (they are superfluous). Done in my local git.

[libreport] rhbz711591 - exclude information which are filled in bugzilla
Signed-off-by: Nikola Pajkovsky <email@example.com>
The second part is pretty hard, because I have to parse all history of the bug to determinate if e.g. the architecture was filled in the bug and then don't bother to report it. I put the request to my TODO list
You shouldn't need to parse the history, just read the 'platform' dropdown.
If that is set to 'unspecified' then report it. If it is set to 'all' or the reporter is the same as what it is set to, don't report it.
Changing back to assigned as the second part is still not fixed.
Fixed in git
