Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

It'd be helpful for detecting and searching for regressions if the pocket a package was installed from was included in apport bug reports. I'm imagining something like:

Package: compiz 1:0.7.8-0ubuntu4.1
PackagePocket: intrepid-updates

While its possible to look up what pocket the package version is from, it'd be more accessible if it were directly included in the bug report.

Brian,

What would be the advantage of this for developers and bug triagers?

As I mentioned in the description this would be helpful in being able to search for regressions - particularly by identifying bugs in packages from -updates or -proposed.

I'm sorry.. you want the pocket information in description. It won't be better to add it to tags? for better filtering.. I really don't know if you can filter it using only the description.
