Let me briefly re-introduce my self. I work on ABRT and I was involved in the integration of ABRT with CentOS Bug Tracker.

I want to let you know that we are re-working ABRT reporting workflow in order to reduce the number of opened bug reports. Our current mission is to encourage users to open "full bug report" (i.e. issue in CentOS Bug Tracker) only if they want to participate in bug resolving process and submit anonymous crash statics [1][2] otherwise.

We are going to let users choose from reporting options similar the following ones:

* [Submit anonymous crash details] - [I do not want to participate in bug resolution process]
* [Enter new bug report] - [I want to help to fix this bug and I need to have it fixed as soon as possible]

These changes should land in CentOS 7 too.

Ideas and suggestions are more than welcome.
