Integrate a Paper Cuts toolbelt into ubuntu-dev-tools

Registered by Chris Wilson on 2012-10-24

In order for the Hundred Paper Cuts project to stay healthy, it needs a constant flow of new bugs, several hundred each cycle, for people to work on. Making it easier to report paper cuts will help keep the reports flowing, and a desktop utility bundled with ubuntu-dev-tools could help with this.

Whiteboard

A simple graphical tool that provides an interface for reporting new paper cuts, with fields customized for paper cut bug reports. ubuntu-bug send a lot of information that is not necessary for these kinds of problems.

An application picker (I think GTK3 has a pretty good one) that will list all the applications installed on the system that are covered by the paper cuts project. When the user chooses one, relevant data about the version of the app, installed plugins, etc, will be added to the report.

The ability to add multiple screenshots using Ubuntu's built-in screenshot utility, but the action will be initiated from the reporting utility, so screenshots are added directly to the report before it's sent.

When the report is send, it will be automatically filed against both the paper cuts project and the app in question, and the Paper Cuts Ninja team will automatically receive an email saying there's a new bug been reported.

These features will speed up the process of reporting new paper cuts - it should take only a few seconds from start to finish.
