Bug Description

Binary package hint: apport

Opening a bug based on an email sent to the kernel-team mailing list:

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kernel-team/2010-August/012025.html

"I just filed a bug against the kernel in Maverick using Apport, and there are some bugs I noticed, and thought this was more appropriate than a Launchpad bug (since there's really no package for this kind of bug report).

1) Using the guided-tagging, I selected "Graphics" and my bug was tagged with 'graphics' instead of 'kernel-graphics', which is what the tag should be according to Kernel/Tagging [1].

2) On Launchpad, the info page asks you to: "Depending on the nature of your bug report following the instructions at
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeamBugPolicies#DIY%20Debugging%20Hints will make your bug report even more complete. Thanks!" However, that link is broken. I'm assuming it should point to [2], or even better [3], since the KernelTeam pages are being deprecated.

Other than those two, the Apport process for kernel bugs looks really really cool, especially the tag promps. Nice work JFo/others! :)

1) The current hook looks correct with respect to the tags (it uses kernel-graphics). I haven't tried it, but I think it will work as expected

2) This sounds like a bug in the per-package bug reporting guidelines, which need to be fixed in Launchpad, rather than apport

I changed the Debugging link, but I think that text needs to be updated a bit more. I have taken an action to rewrite this text.

Matt, I agree with you, the tagging seems to have been addressed. I'm going to close this bug as fixed since the main issues have been fixed.

Thanks!
