#1050 closed enhancement (duplicate)

inform user about exceptions, offer to file a bug report

Reported by: sascha_silbe Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: New


Uncaught exceptions (i.e. those that end up in the logs) are always a sign of a software bug. So at least for the Sugar shell, we should inform the user something bad has happened and how to report it back to us, in order to get it fixed.

Apport seems to do something similar. Haven't used it myself (neither as a developer nor as a user), though . I'm not proposing to use it, BTW, just presenting prior art for comparison.
Gnome Bug Buddy probably is closer to what we want.

  • Milestone changed from 0.88 to 0.90

Requires UI changes, no go for 0.88.
