 apport (0.89) gutsy; urgency=low
   Implement private crash bug handling, according to
   * apport/crashdb_impl/
     - upload(): If we have an Ubuntu bug, mark it as private and only
       subscribe 'apport' (the 'Apport retracing service' user).
     - Add function _subscribe_triaging_team() which subscribes
       ubuntu-crashes-main for source packages in Ubuntu main or restricted, or
       ubuntu-crashes-universe for other packages. It does not touch non-Ubuntu
       bugs, since these are not marked private by default and are outside of
       the scope of this spec.
     - update(), _mark_dup_checked(): Call _subscribe_triaging_team().
     - Note: This entire spec is a gross hack, and Ubuntu derivatives do not
       benefit from it at all. We have to live with this until LP grows a real
       crash database.
     - get_distro_release(): Make this function work with private bugs, too, by
       using p-lp-bugs' safe_urlopen().
   Bug fixes:
   * apport/crashdb_impl/ Revert simplification change of 0.85:
     BugList returns a set of strings, not integers; due to non-identity they
     do not work with the usual set operations.
   * apport/crashdb_impl/ Add function get_source_component() to
     query Launchpad for the component of a given distribution and source
     package. (This will be required for implementing crash-reporting).
   * backends/, _search_contents(): Package list is
     actually comma separated, only take the first item. This fixes retracing
     of e. g. #124139.
   * backends/, _search_contents(): Fix package name
     parsing for non-main components. This fixes retracing of e. g. #124111.
   * apport/, _read_maps(): Revert ptrace hack when maps cannot be
     read. maps file is now protected based on process ownership, not ptracing.
   * apport/, apport/crashdb_impl/,
     apport/crashdb_impl/ Remove official interface
     mark_dup_checked(), as it should only be an internally used function. Add
     report parameter, since we will need it there in the future. Remove
     explicit call from bin/crash-digger and instead change check_duplicate()
     to call it on its own.
   * apport/crashdb_impl/, download(): Replace dodgy parsing of
     fields from the description with proper code, so that multi-line fields
     are read correctly, too.
