 apport (0.83) gutsy; urgency=low
   * apport/ Separate abstract from implemented functions.
   * apport/, apport/, apport/ Use
     NotImplementedError instead of Exception in the abstract methods.
   * apport/ Add interface compare_versions() for comparing
     package version numbers.
   * backends/ Implement compare_versions() using
     apt.VersionCompare(), add some test cases.
   * apport/ Fix typo: 'none' -> 'None'.
   * apport/ Do not include /usr/local/lib and /usr/lib in
     LD_LIBRARY_PATH, just /lib, so that we still use the libc from outside,
     but e. g. libxml2 from inside the chroot.
 . Merge
   crash-dups branch, which implements automatic crash duplicate detection:
   * apport/ Add methods for crash duplicate detection.
   * apport/crashdb_impl/ Change internal data management to track
     fixed version and duplicates.
   * apport/crashdb_impl/ Add a test suite for all methods, including
     the duplicate detection API of the base CrashDatabase (since it is
     much easier to test it here, on an actual implementation).
   * debian/pyversions: Bump minimal Python version to 2.5, since this starts
     providing the sqlite3 module.
   * apport/crashdb_impl/ Implement new methods required for crash
     duplicate detection. get_fixed_version() does not approximate version
     tracking yet; it just returns '' for fixed bugs (which means 'fixed, but
     unknown version'). Bump python-launchpad-bugs dependency for this to
     ensure the availability of Bug.mark_duplicate().
   * bin/apport-retrace: Add option --duplicate-db which specifies the path to
     the duplicate sqlite database and enables duplicate detection.
   * Abin/apport-chroot: Add option --duplicate-db. If a file is given, symlink
     it into the chroot and pass --duplicate-db to apport-retrace.
   * bin/launchpad-crash-digger: Add --duplicate-db and pass it to
   * apport/ Track last run of duplicate_db_consolidate() in an
     extra table and add a method duplicate_db_needs_consolidation() which
     returns True if the last run was more than a given number of seconds ago.
     Add test cases to apport/crashdb_impl/
   * bin/launchpad-crash-digger, fill_pool(): Check whether the duplicate
     database needs consolidation (i. e. updating the bug states to the reality
     in the bug tracker) and if so, trigger it.
