You need to add this to the respective analyzer's configs:

InformAllUsers = yes

CCpp.conf - C/C++ xrashes analyzer
Python.conf - python analyzer
Kerneloops.conf - kerneloops (already has this enabled)

But this applies only to new crashes, the old ones will still be 
invisible for ordinary users.
Working on updating the man-pages and wiki right now.

Yes, we're changing the behavior right now.
