retracer should tag bug when adding regression comment

Bug #271876 reported by Brian Murray on 2008-09-18
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
apport (Ubuntu)
Martin Pitt

Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

The apport retracer is adding comments to bug indicating that they are possibly a regression of another bug. It'd be helpful if these bugs were also tagged, maybe using 'regression-retracer', so it will be possible to search for these bug reports.

The tag 'regression-retracer' would be consistent with the 'regression-'* naming scheme used to identify regressions.

Attached is a patch for revision number 1141 of apport.

This bug was fixed in the package apport - 0.115

apport (0.115) intrepid; urgency=low

  [ Matt Zimmerman ]
  * Add apport/ with some convenience functions for writing hook
    scripts (work in progress)
  * Extend ubuntu-bug to accept a path as an argument and look up the package
  * Rename kernel_hook to kernel_crashdump (there are other kernel hooks)
  * Change kernel crash report type to KernelCrash
  * Fix to not crash when automatix isn't installed (LP: #267004)
  * Add bin/kernel_oops hook to capture a kernel oops (eg. via kerneloops)

  [ Martin Pitt ]
  * Add AUTHORS file for collecting the list of major contributors and
    copyright holders.
  * apport/ If we do not find a bug pattern file for the binary
    package, fall back to looking for one with the source package name.
  * run-tests: Provide a better error message if apport/ does
    not exist.

  [ Brian Murray ]
  * apport/crashdb_impl/ Add regression-retracer tag to bugs
    which seem to be a regression (duplicate, and crash happens in a later
    version than the fix). (LP: #271876)
