I'm happy to announce that we've finished our work on adding support for CentOS Bug 
Tracker to ABRT.

The final solution requires a not yet released version of MantisBT as we've decided to 
enhance MantisBT instead of developing a plugin (it was impossible to develop such a 
plugin). We've written a short installation documentation available at:

The patches adding support for MantisBT resp. CentOS Bug Tracker have landed in the 
upstream master but we've also back-ported them to RHEL-7 and created a COPR 
repository with the updated packages:

yum (upgrade|update) will install three new packages:
* libreport-plugin-mantisbt - libreport plugin for communication with MantisBT
* libreport-centos - configuration required for CentOS Bug Tracker
* abrt-retrace-client - allows users to generate backtrace from coredump without the 
need to download debuginfo

After upgrading you have to do some changes to your setup that are described here:

Finally, you have to set the CentOS Bug Tracker URL to the testing instance. 
(Unfortunately, I am not able to find that URL in my mailbox).

All the necessary information required for enabling reporting to CentOS Bug Tracker 
are available at:

We are looking forward to receive your feedback.
