Well I don't think it is worthwhile chasing the abrt bugs through
regardless of which bugzilla it uses. The true value of abrt is the data
that is collected and can be viewed through:
Because by looking at the 'problems' tab you will quite quickly see which
crashers are hitting
a lot of your users and are the ones making the distro seem unstable.
Despite its shortcomings it is worthwhile to note that abrt catches between
5000 and 10 000 crashers
a day, even going up to almost 24 000 one day for f20. So I think it does
provide enough data to help us
improve our quality. I know a lot of developers (and managers) are checking
the retrace data regularly and use it
to prioritize which bugs are looked at first.
It's not as useful as you make it seem. There are things that can be fixed, certainly
but there are also a number of those crashers for which there won't be an obvious
answer, the result of a bug earlier in the code, and no way to reproduce the problem,
contact the bug submitter, or get more information.
So instead of looking into dropping it we should if needed instead
try to see
if we can try to
help the ABRT team improve it further.
