Running Rawhide gives one plenty of opportunity to report bugs; in the
process, I often find the Fedora bugzilla choked with ABRT reports.  I
can't imagine that flood of stuff is useful to anybody, and it makes
life hard for people who want to try to avoid putting in duplicate
reports.  ABRT quality is low, and I can easily see it driving away
higher-quality reports from people who are actually willing to follow
