Since I've been one of the people saying 'Make it easier for people
to report bugs', I had to try this. I installed version 0.3 of bug-buddy
today and played about with it.
I have got to say, this absolutely rocks. It's really clear, and
very clever. And nice and simple to use. It's clever. Kudos to Jacob
and the other people involved with it.

Wail. And I spent all those hours learning how to type 'gdb' and 'bt' :)
When I got Tickastat, I was awed to watch that automatically generate
backtraces from crashes. I'm still awed now, watching bug-buddy do it.
It's just... neat. Life is now much easier.
Telsa, dead impressed.
