Possible removal of ABRT from FW 21

The Fedora Workstation group has been discussing the possibility of
dropping ABRT from the live image for F21 so that it is no longer
installed by default. The discussion starts at [1] and is probably best
summarized by that first post.

The consensus seems to me to be that the automatic crash reporting that
runs in the background and notifies the user when programs crash is OK,
but only if it can be separated from the GUI for reporting to Bugzilla,
which we do not want to keep at this time for the reasons brought up in
that thread. I'm particularly interested if the ABRT developers would be
interested in working on the development and packaging changes to make
that split possible, or if it would best to drop ABRT altogether for the
time being.

Please note that I am not a member of the working group, and there has
not yet been any formal decision on this matter -- this is just a
heads-up that one may be approaching. If you want to participate in the
discussion, please sign up for the fedora-desktop@ mailing list where
Workstation planning occurs.
