Thanks for working on this and help making Ubuntu better!

So, here are some feedback:
- do we have other apport hooks packages killing a process to rerun it into debug mode? That sounds a little bit touchy.
- if we do, I guess it will be good to check the return code of subprocess and abort if we can't kill it before going further.
- I guess "report["CheeseDebug.log"] = apport.hookutils.command_output(['env', 'GST_DEBUG=*cheese*:3', 'cheese', '-v'])" should be executed only in case of "response == 0", no?

Status in “cheese” package in Ubuntu: Triaged

Bug description:
Binary package hint: cheese

I'v noticed in several cheese package bugs that the users are asked to run commands in the terminal to gather information required for the developers to work on.

This is quite an unfriendly way for users .

Kindly implement apport hooks for cheese so that the apport collects the required information.
