I am working on a new version of ABRT which should have Bugzilla disabled
in GNOME by default. So, it won't be necessary to remove any package,
everything will be done on ABRT side. Unfortunately, I cannot release
the updated packages until we upgrade the Fedora's ABRT server. And I would
rather hear some feedback before I push those changes to upstream.

Hey Richard and Workstation WG,
Reporting to Bugzilla is still extremely slow (I gave up on a report
today after roughly 10 minutes of "preparing environment for backtrace
generation). Unless this retrace server upgrade is coming very soon and
is expected to produce an order of magnitude performance increase, then
I think we should go ahead and disable reporting to Bugzilla in the
meantime. We can do this by removing the gnome-abrt package while
leaving the other abrt packages in place. Try this locally to see how it
works -- ABRT will still process the crashes and send automatic crash
reports to the retrace server, unobtrusively notifying the user when it
has done so, but the problematic UI for reporting to Bugzilla will be
There is one minor bug: once, by clicking on the notification in some
particular way, I received a notification that said "Failed to launch
abrt.desktop" (or something similar). It disappeared pretty quickly and
I haven't managed to reproduce. Besides that problem, this seems like a
good option to consider as the default for Workstation.
