    apport (gtk & cli) doesn't create a LP report on crashes

    Atm a crash will produce an apport popup & if pursued create a .upload & .uploaded but no LP report
    The .uploaded file is owned by whoopsie so possibly? these crashes are uploaded to a db somewhere.

    The question would be is this a new way intended, atm or otherwise.
    can't find any documentation on this so filed a bug to see
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...t/+bug/1078911

    A bit hesitant to post how to restore LP reporting on crashers if they aren't desired, but it's noted in the report on how to do so.
    (I have until told otherwise..

    This was specific to crashes & apport (gtk or cli
    ubuntu-bug <whatever> has worked fine since the fix a ways back

    On the other hand crashes which produce the pop up or using
    apport-cli /var/crash/whatever.crash seem to just upload to a db

    At least here re-enabled by editing /etc/apport/crashdb.conf as have heard nothing one way or the other on whether LP apport crash reports are desired or not.
