New bug-buddy: less is more

Thanks to the great Olav we have XML-RPC on GNOME bugzilla (testing version). So I finally committed to an experimental branch the new bug-buddy “less is more”:

  • No more application/product/component selection
  • No more long descriptions
  • No more mostfreq stuff
  • No more gdb pages
  • No more save report
  • No more sendmail at all

Just catch the crash, get the info and send it. The remaining issues are:

  • Should we ask the user what was he doing during the crash? (Windows and other reporting tools are not doing it)
  • Should we ask email address to the user?
