I think abrt is mostly useful tool, but it should be more interactive to 
our users. No, most problem from it (at my experience and by other 
answers there) because we got many reports dead at begining. Users 
encountered fill bug report, but if it is new user, it in 90% cases even 
do not answer on question how it may be reproduced.
I assume it is main bad there.
Can we add functionality track user bugreports and allow answer on 
requests (as minimum with 'needinfo' state) directly from abrt??
I think it may serious increase percentage of usefull bug reports from abrt.
