In order for the Hundred Paper Cuts project to stay healthy, it needs a
constant flow of new bugs, several hundred each cycle, for people to work
on. Making it easier to report paper cuts will help keep the reports
flowing, and a desktop utility bundled with ubuntu-dev-tools could help
with this.

A simple graphical tool that provides an interface for reporting new paper
cuts, with fields customized for paper cut bug reports. ubuntu-bug send a
lot of information that is not necessary for these kinds of problems.

An application picker (I think GTK3 has a pretty good one) that will list
all the applications installed on the system that are covered by the paper
cuts project. When the user chooses one, relevant data about the version of
the app, installed plugins, etc, will be added to the report.

The ability to add multiple screenshots using Ubuntu's built-in screenshot
utility, but the action will be initiated from the reporting utility, so
screenshots are added directly to the report before it's sent.

When the report is send, it will be automatically filed against both the
paper cuts project and the app in question, and the Paper Cuts Ninja team
will automatically receive an email saying there's a new bug been reported.

These features will speed up the process of reporting new paper cuts - it
should take only a few seconds from start to finish.
