GNOME bug-reporting utility

The goal of bug-buddy is to make reporting bugs very simple and easy for the user, while making the reports themselves more useful and informative for the developer. Features include the ability to obtain a stack trace from a core file or crashed application and to determine versions of packages installed on your system. The program can be started both from gmc and from the crash dialog. It supports GNOME, KDE, Debian, and Ximian bug tracking systems.
