Ok, there we go then :)
IMHO, the automatic bug reporting should really be made easier without all
those prompts and selections. In Android/Windows there is just one
question, do you want to submit it, yes/no? That should be enough. So this
+ activated per default on all admin-accounts = more submitted bug reports
= more stable Ubuntu-releases in the long run.
