Bug Description

When a bug is filed via apport, apport should be possible to specify that the bug should be filed as a private bug. This should be done by adding a new header to the uploaded blob:

Private: Yes

This will be used unti we have a proper crash database.

Rejected, because apport should grow its own CrashReport table.

I'm taking the liberty to reopen this. I'm fully aware that this will not be the ultimate solution, and that eventually we want a real 'crash' concept in Malone. However, until then we urgently need this as an intermediate approach so that we stop exposing sensitive data like passwords, or even DVD CSS keys (!) to the public.

See for the current plan how to design this intermediate system. It uses what we have (except for this bug), is easy to implement, and has the major properties we need.

Martin, Bjorn and I talked about the crash database, and we have a spec in progress, but the privacy concern here makes me reluctantly agree with him. Let's work to get the crash record database up soon (so this can be reverted).
