Sorry if my mail wasn't clear wrt how abrt works. There is no special
or different notification pathway. The abrt tool simply creates bugs
(after checking for duplicates, using some heuristics, I think) in the
Fedora Bugzilla instance on behalf of the user who sees the crash,
So, if you have a notification already set-up for the shotwell
component, you should see all bug reports, including those generated
If not, the easiest way to get all bug notifications would be to sign
up with the Fedora Account System (fas) here 
and afterwards request "watchbugzilla" permissions for shotwell in the
Fedora Package Database .
