For making this patch using quilt, I followed these steps:- 
 1.a   Added module-bug-buddy.py in data/icons folder
 1.b   Correspondingly I have modified the data/icons/Makefile.am (added info about module-bug-buddy.py)

2. Added a new folder named "reportbug" in extensions/cpsection

    *     .Added _init_.py file, model.py and view.py file
    *      Added extensions/cpsection/reportbug/Makefile.am
    *     Modified the extensions/cpsection/Makefile.am (added sub dir report bug)

3. Modify the src/jarabe/controlpanel/gui.py file

4. Make changes in the gui.py file.

5. Made changes in configure.ac file accordingly.

6. quilt shell (enter) "autoreconf -i" (enter) exit

Add apport bug reporting support in sugar

Status in “sugar-0.88” package in Ubuntu: In Progress

Bug description:
Binary package hint: sugar-emulator-0.88

Description: Ubuntu maverick (development branch)
Release: 10.10
Package version: 0.88.1-2ubuntu1

Feature Request:
Add apport bug reporting support in sugar-automatic crash reporting and little icon in the frame to report bugs. 

Apport is a system which
* intercepts crashes right when they happen the first time,
* gathers potentially useful information about the crash and the OS environment,
* can be automatically invoked for unhandled exceptions in other programming languages 
* can be automatically invoked for other problems that can be automatically detected (e. g. Ubuntu automatically detects and reports package installation/upgrade failures from update-manager),
* presents a UI that informs the user about the crash and instructs them on how to proceed,
* is able to file non-crash bug reports about software, so that developers still get information about package versions, OS version etc.
