automated bugreporting - whole system

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution


It is a nasty jop to report bugs to the openSUSE bugzilla by hand.
A automated bugreporting for the whole openSUSE OS like in KDE (drkonqi) would be great.
It would save time for the user, improve the frequency of bugreports for the project(I guess many bugs don´t find the way to bugzilla), and a coupling to a stacktrace or logfiles would improve the quality of the bugreports in the openSUSE bugzilla.
Good for the user, good for the quality of openSUSE, not so good for a developer(->many work:)

Yes, I´ve saw it just after I´ve brought up this request.
But, let it open and give the community the chance to vote for or reject it.
May be it gives a good motivation for a good implementation.

Yes, a adaption of the established bugreporting tools would have been greate in some points, but the things has come other.

The GSOC has finished and you can get the bugreporter from:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/mihneadb/ It is a command line tool which has no deamon and has to be start manually when you have a program in trouble, so it is not automatically and as far as I have seen it can primary be useful for programs that have frozen states(not have seen the latest version!).
When you want to know more look at:
http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Bugreporter When you want to see the code and get involved(it is in python):
When you want to say "thank you" to the developer:

Mihnea Dobrescu-Balaur -> the rest is search engine usage
