Apport intercepts program crashes, collects debugging information about the
crash and the operating system environment, and sends it to bug trackers in a
standardized form. It also offers the user to report a bug about a package,
with again collecting as much information about it as possible.
This package extends Apport by some "symptom" scripts, so that bug reporters
do not have to guess the correct package, but report problems based on
symptoms that they have (like "sound problem"), through an interactive process.
