    Launchpad has been the de-facto way to report bugs at least in part due to it’s online presence. Apport doesn’t appear to have a main website; bug reports seemingly vanish into the aether. Is there any way to view developer comments on the bug and/or provide more info after the fact?

    Can third party projects use apport? It doesn’t look like it right now.

    Kubuntu doesn’t include apport.

    Nowadays ubuntu-bug also (at least since Quantal, 12.10) has -w option which prompts you to click on the program that you wish to report – if it crashed, start it up again. If its an app inside a terminal, this wont work (it’ll report a bug for the terminal itself, probably not what you want mostly) but you should know what you typed to run the command in the terminal then so can run it directly with the program/package name.
