Dialogue answers

During the reporting process report-gtk might show a dialogue asking for a decision to be made. Some of those dialogues provides an option to remember the answer. If it is requested to remember the answer, report-gtk saves the answer in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/abrt/settings/report-gtk.conf

If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not set, $HOME/.config is used instead.

Reporting work flow configuration

These configuration files are placed in /usr/share/libreport/workflows.

Each file has XML formatting with the following DTD:

<!ELEMENT workflow    (name+,description+,priority?,events*)>
<!ELEMENT name        (#PCDATA)>
<!ATTLIST name         xml:lang CDATA #IMPLIED>
<!ELEMENT description (#PCDATA)>
<!ATTLIST description  xml:lang CDATA #IMPLIED>
<!ELEMENT priority =  (#PCDATA)>
<!ELEMENT events =    (event)+>
<!ELEMENT event =     (#PCDATA)>
