b.crash : module documentation

Part of bzrlib

Handling and reporting crashes.

A crash is an exception propagated up almost to the top level of Bazaar.

If we have apport <https://launchpad.net/apport/>, we store a report of the crash using apport into its /var/crash spool directory, from where the user can either manually send it to Launchpad. In some cases (at least Ubuntu development releases), Apport may pop up a window asking if they want to send it.

Without apport, we just write a crash report to stderr and the user can report this manually if the wish.

We never send crash data across the network without user opt-in.

In principle apport can run on any platform though as of Feb 2010 there seem to be some portability bugs.

To force this off in bzr turn set APPORT_DISABLE in the environment or -Dno_apport.
