  not all packages from PPAs have '[origin: ' in Package section

Status in Daisy:

Status in apport source package in Precise:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Test Case
  1) Install galicaster package from wiki.teltek.es (or any other random deb file will do)
  2) Run the executable
  3) Find the pid of the program and kill it with signal 11
  4) Inspect the .crash file (after it is finished being written) and observe the "Package: " key doesn't not contain "[origin: unknown]"

  With the version of apport from -proposed it will contain information
  about it being from an unknown origin.

  Original Description
  I was querying for columns in the counters column family starting with 'Ubuntu ' as I was looking for the counts of bugs reported about packages.  In the column family I discovered 'Ubuntu 12.10:indicator-stickynotes' and was having trouble finding errors for that package because it is from a PPA.  Given that the package is from a PPA it shouldn't be appearing in the counters column family at all though.

  From daisy/submit.py:

      package = data.get('Package', '')
      src_package = data.get('SourcePackage', '')
      problem_type = data.get('ProblemType', '')
      third_party = False
      if '[origin:' in package:
          third_party = True

  Then before running update_release_pkg_counter we check for 'if not
  third_party'.  Looking at least some of the oops for indicator-
  stickynotes all of them had '[origin:' in the Package key.
