dupdb-admin - Manage the duplicate database for apport-retrace.


dupdb-admin -f dbpath dump

dupdb-admin -f dbpath changeid oldid newid

dupdb-admin -f dbpath publish path


apport-retrace(1) has the capability of checking for duplicate bugs (amonst other things).
It uses an SQLite database for keeping track of master bugs. dupdb-admin is a small tool
to manage that database.

The central concept in that database is a "crash signature", a string that uniquely
identifies a particular crash. It is built from the executable path name, the signal
number or exception name, and the topmost functions of the stack trace.

The database maps crash signatures to the 'master' crash id and thus can close duplicate
crash reports with a reference to that master ID. It also tracks the status of crashes
(open/fixed in a particular version) to be able to identify regressions.


dump Print a list of all database entries.

Change the associated crash ID for a particular crash.

Export the duplicate database into a set of text files in the given directory which
is suitable for WWW publishing. If the directory already exists, it will be
updated. The new content is built in a new directory which is the given one with
".new" appended, then moved to the given name in an almost atomic way.


-f path, --database-file=path
Path to the duplicate database SQLite file.
