[Bug 565004] Re: file reports via e-mail


Just because the package version about which this bug was reported is an
End of Life version does not mean that the bug does not exist. It is
still not possible to file reports via email and subsequently this bug
report is still valid.

@dino99 - Please do a little bit of research and stop assuming that
because a bug was reported about an End of Life release of Ubuntu that
the bug is Invalid. That is rarely the case.

** Changed in: apport (Ubuntu)
       Status: Invalid => Confirmed

  file reports via e-mail

Status in apport package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: apport

  When using ubuntu-bug to file some bug reports recently I've filled
  out the summary and description for my bug report in Launchpad only to
  have Launchpad then OOPs on me.  This has happened multiple times and
  I've had to recreate the description and summary each time.  Needless
  to say this was not fun nor a worthwhile use of my time.

  I was thinking that having a way to send the bug report via e-mail
  would help work around this issue.  So someone would pass the -e
  switch to ubuntu-bug and be able to add in a summary (and maybe a
  description) and send it off.  This seems less likely to generate an
  OOPs - I hope!
