By default, all Apport crash reports are made private. This is because they
might contain confidential or sensitive information in the files that are
attached. Usually, a bug triager will check the report for such information
before deciding whether to make it public or not. That hadn't happened with
that report yet, as it appears nobody has looked at it. I've made it public
for you though.
