"The http://www.kerneloops.org website collects kernel oops and warning reports from various mailing lists and bugzillas as well as with a client users can install to auto-submit oopses," began Arjan van de Ven, referring to a website first announced last December. He summarized, "this week, a total of 3670 oopses and warnings have been reported, compared to 3029 reports in the previous week." The 'kerneloops' client is available from the project's web page, and is now being included by multiple distributions. Arjan explains, "in addition to Fedora, Debian now has included the client application in their default GUI install targets, thanks a lot for that!" He went on to discuss some recent changes:
"This week, based on feedback, I've split the report into 'untainted' and 'caused by proprietary drivers'. Let me know if I should continue doing this or if the old format was better.
"As an experiment (on request) I've exported the database to text files (one file per report) and stuck it in a git repository. You can take a look with git clone git://www.kerneloops.org/ Suggestions for improving the format of this are obviously very welcome, as are 'yes useful' and 'no not useful' comments. Again, this is an experiment, if it's not seen as useful I may discontinue it."
