comes to efficiency, it is.
In other words, as far as I am concerned, abrt has reduced efficiency of
bug-hunting by flooding maintainers with low quality, often unusable
reports and risen the communication churn related to BZs.
Conversely, a similar consideration applies to the user side: abrt has
lowered the threshold to report bugs and risen the expectations on
report bugs responses.
Fixing crasher bugs
is surely an inherently desirable thing, even if it *does* add work
examining the reports.
As I tried to express before, "serious crashers"
likely would also have
been reported without abrt. I seriously question, abrt has much helpful
impact on reports related to "crashers".
It's the "nagging"/"non-crasher" class of bugs, which is really
the "user-experience" of Fedora, exactly the class of bugs "abrt" is
designed to to not cover.
