File the bug on launchpad, note the bug on QA with the failure type and
area, and the specific package if you know it, since I always debug by
hand, I don't know much about apport and ubuntu-bug so I can't really
help you with how it works (it's supposed to be automatic?!) This url

The best direction I can give as far as technical is stated above, the
second best advice I can give is clean out the crap from your signature,
a single line message + your name will do, but when your signature is
bigger than your message, it's time to re-evaluate whether your
signature is actually useful a lot of people will ignore your emails if
they all come in like that.
