Description David Kutálek 2012-12-27 11:22:14 EST
Description of problem:

ABRT is calling sosreport during crash, with very limited set of plugins. ABRT knows which package contains crashed executable, and could know in future packages with relevant libraries.

Would be neat if ABRT could pass package name(s) when calling sosreport to gather some crash specific info. It could be eg.:

 - config files for given package
 - rpm -V for given package
 - something more?

Maybe, it can even enable some relevant plugins, but this is probably too expensive to implement and manage.

Syntax could be eg:
sosreport --only=anaconda --only... --package=thunderbird
