We upstream developers would like to be notified whenever a user files
a bug against the Shotwell package in Fedora, automated or otherwise.
I know how to set up per-package notifications in bugzilla, but from
your description of the ABRT system, it sounds like it may use a
different notification pathway than just the standard Fedora bugzilla.
So I ask you: what do we upstream developers need to do to be notified
whenever a bug is filed against the Shotwell package in Fedora,
without regard to whether the bug was filed automatically by ABRT or
manually by a user opening a bugzilla ticket?
