@mleonova any updates on this one?

this is still on @mleonova 's plate, she has been busy.

  • ABRT is a client software installed on user machines
  • ABRT detects problems like Kernel oops, Python exceptions, core dump files
  • ABRT notifies users about the detected problems via Desktop notifications
  • Users can report the detect problems to Red Hat Bugzilla
  • The reporting consists of 3 steps:
    1. micro-report (pure technical data like memory addresses) to FAF
    2. problem data review
    3. Bugzilla bug

  • FAF is a server collecting micro-reports

  • FAF replies to received a report with known details that may include
  • Solution
  • Recommendations
  • URLs to known bug reports
  • FAF provides Fedora maintainers with crash statistics
    (maintainers can focus on the most significant crashes only)

Metadata Update from @terezahl:
- Issue assigned to terezahl (was: mleonova)

The reason for the hedgehog logo is that ABRT notifies people about problems and bugs. And hedgehogs eat bugs. Also I got inspired by some sketches from @mleonova. Inside is kind of minimalistic version of ABRT logo. The logo is very simple, but I guess that's okay, as it's meant for small icon. Black of course stands out more than some lighter colors and makes the whole logo more visible.

@jfilak Hey any feedback? We'll assume it's sufficient and close the ticket in ~2 weeks if we don't hear back.

Hello @duffy @terezahl , sorry for the delay in responding. @jfilak no longer works at RedHat. Anyway, we had a meeting about the new logo and most members of the team don't like it very much hence, we've decided to not use another logo for FAF server and use the existing one for all ABRT's tools. Thank you for your effort and sorry for inconvenience. Matej

@mhabrnal thanks for getting back to us! I'll close the ticket.
