Bug Description

We want to automatically link bug reports created by Apport with HWDB submissions.

This is most easily done if Apport includes the header

 HWDB-Submission: submission-key


 HWDB-Submission: submission-key, submission-key...

if the user made more than one HWDB submission on he affected machine)

FileBugViewBase should create a new HWDBSubmissionBug record, once the new bug has been created.

Once +storeblob accepts that, I'll change apport to include it. Thanks, Abel!

you can test the new header on once its revision number is >= 8449.

This is a sample MIME message I used for tests:

MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-type: multipart/mixed; boundary=boundary
HWDB-Submission: sample-submission, non-existing-submission-key

Content-disposition: inline
Content-type: text/plain; charset=utf-8

This should be added to the description.

Hm, I just tried that on staging, with sending this:

Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="===============7747359919282329481=="
MIME-Version: 1.0
HWDB-Submission: 6923ba68f90064b9e2e670997b655a8d

I filed staging bugs 437897 and bug 437898 (only valid today), and I neither get any visible reference there in the web ui, and getHWSubmissions() returns an empty collection. Is that still not rolled out to staging perhaps? (it's on r8532)

  * New upstream bug fix release:
    - apport-cli: Print the URL and ask whether to open a browser. In many
      situations (such as usage on a server through ssh), it's preferable to not
      open the browser on the reporting computer. Thanks to Matt Zimmerman for the
      initial patch! (LP: #286415)
    - general-hooks/ Collect important glib errors/assertions (which
      should not have private data) from ~/.xsession-errors (LP: #431807)
    - Link hardware data submission key if it exists. (LP: #424382)
    - apport-cli: Fix crash with non-ASCII characters in prompts.
    - Fix "apport-bug symptomname" to actually work.
    - Fix crash on invalid credentials file. Thanks to Marco
      Rodrigues for the initial patch! (LP: #414055)
  * man/apport-bug.1: Document APPORT_IGNORE_OBSOLETE_PACKAGES (cherrypicked
    from trunk), and APPORT_STAGING (Ubuntu specific change, since it's a
    launchpad backend specific variable).
  * bin/apport-bug: Ignore -p option when giving two arguments, to keep
    compatibility with current bug filing instructions. (LP: #356755)
  * debian/copyright: Update copyright year and fix GPL link, thanks Marco
