       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.
