[Merge] lp:~brian-murray/apport/external-core-file into lp:apport


Brian Murray has proposed merging lp:~brian-murray/apport/external-core-file into lp:apport.

Requested reviews:
  Apport upstream developers (apport-hackers)

For more details, see:

apport-retrace can take a --core-file option which will point to an external file which is a core dump for retracing, however apport-retrace reads that file and adds it to the report object which is inefficient.  Instead we can just set the CoreDump key to a file path and pass that to gdb_command which already supports this. Briefly:

        if 'CoreDump' in self:
            if hasattr(self['CoreDump'], 'find'):
                # value is a file path
                core = self['CoreDump'][0]

Your team Apport upstream developers is requested to review the proposed merge of lp:~brian-murray/apport/external-core-file into lp:apport.
