Everything You Always Wanted to Know About your bugs But Were Afraid to Ask

Today I implemented a great idea from Federico: Helper to collect more info in bug-buddy. Just add

X-GNOME-Bugzilla-ExtraInfoScript=myscript

to you .desktop file or a

bugzilla:extra_info_script

entry in your .server file. When you application crahses bug-buddy will include the output of that script into the bug report. Some nice information that some applications would like to know:

  • Totem: output of a typefind gst pipeline over the current playing media file
  • gnome-volume-control: list of alsa devices
  • Add your most wanted info here!

We are already telling the user that the data he is submiting could include some personal information and we are requesting him to review it, however we should never collect sensitive information as emails contents, contact lists, etc..
