Extend Apport Functionality

Registered by David Murphy on 2009-05-05

Some bugs require more information than just automatically attaching system logs to a bug. Some bugs (eg suspend/resume bugs) also need a series of questions to also be answered. Checkbox already provides this type of functionality. It would be good to investigate how to extend apport to leverage checkbox.

checkbox: disable apport filebug if apport is disabled
tag them with apport-symptom
ensure that hooks can easily add tags
