Bug Description

We propose to add a new feature to the Checkbox UI, which will allow the user to send their test results to the Launchpad Hardware Database (https://launchpad.net/+hwdb/+submit). The UI will be changed to ask for the users Launchpad email address at the end of testing. After submitting they will see a response indicating whether submission was succesful or if some error occured.

N.B. This reinstates a feature that was in Checkbox in previous releases, but was removed during Trusty development due to re-implementation of the Checkbox core and UI.

This feature is considered beneficial as it will mean users will continue being able to send test reports to Launchpad, which may at a later date be used for currently undefined purposes (a past use has been to drive the Ubuntu Friendly database).

The visible UI changes (warranting a UIFe) are in checkbox-gui, but in order for this feature to work fully, the following syncs will need to be done from Debian:

- plainbox 0.5.3
- checkbox-ng 0.3
- plainbox-provider-checkbox 0.4
- checkbox-support 0.2

Testing that has been performed as of now:

- Package builds
- Package installs on Trusty
- Submit to Launchpad feature works, and no noticable regressions occur
  in regular usage of Checkbox

I agree that we want this feature in trusty so that we can collect test reports, and I'd much rather we landed it now rather than trying to shove it in post-release, so let's do it. FFe approved.
