Bug Description

====== SRU justification ==========
Impact: Lxc bug reports do not include needed debugging information.
Development fix: add an apport hook for lxc
Stable fix: same as development fix.
Test case: run 'sudo apport-cli -f -p lxc --save' and check
Regression potential: none

lxc in quantal has an apport hook. In precise it does not. Given that precise is a LTS, an apport hook seem worth an SRU.

Hello Serge, or anyone else affected,

Accepted lxc into precise-proposed. The package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please help us by testing this new package. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users. If this package fixes the bug for you please change the bug tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not, change the tag to verification-failed. In either case details of your testing will help us make a better decision.
