All of which are fairly important when working on bugs. gnome-abrt (or
some future Oops) is not ready to handle this, will not work outside
Fedora within the foreseeable future, and will not be included in
many/most distributions ever.

And not all bugs are crashes fortunately :-), the poppler or webkit version
used by evince and ephy is quite important for rendering bugs, for example.

It can also be gathered automatically, that's what the
X-GNOME-Bugzilla-ExtraInfoScript field in desktop files was there for,
back in the day.

The bug reporting application should use that script, on top of common
information like build information (eg. package versions) of the app
itself and of its dependencies.
