This debdiff adds gnome-power-bugreport.sh output to apport's gnome-power-manager script.

I believe it was removed since it uses HAL and replaced with "devkit-power -d"

However, gnome-power-bugreport.sh is the upstream's tool for adding information to bug reports, and they request that it is attach to their bug reports. Including this will reduce bug email ping pong. When upstream changes gnome-power-bugreport.sh to use devicekit instead of HAL, we will still be getting the output of the script.

I also added the above debdiff as a branch: lp:~showard314/gnome-power/apport-gnome-power-bugreport

which method do you prefer for future patches to the GPM packaging?

Thanks, Scott! Merging bzr branches is very convenient, but applying a debdiff is trivial, too, so I don't really mind too much. I'd say, for one casual patch a debdiff is easier for you, but if you want to work with g-p-m more closely, then bzr is definitively better (bzr-builddeb, merging with trunk, etc.).
