Comment 2 for bug 997283

Do Launchpad bugs still get generated from apport bug reports?

If it is no longer possible to use apport to report a bug on Launchpad, do we have to go back to manually opening bug reports on Launchpad?

This seems like quite a change in behaviour, it would be nice if apport at least said "Your report has been sent", and perhaps included some more information (like a Launchpad url for the bug).

At the moment, a user just checks "Send an error report", clicks Continue, and it appears that nothing happens. The user has no idea if the bug has been reported successfully, or where to go to get more information on the bug. Launchpad is not just a statistical tool for counting bugs, it is a valuable tool for users to investigate fixes and communicate workarounds.
