My use-case was private distro, where it's imho valid to gather
build stats from every build which happens in the company (we're using
it to find builds which weren't configured correctly, e.g. referencing
non-existent premirror/sstate-mirror etc).
Should I just change the description and commit message so that it
doesn't promote it for distro config to use it or should I keep it all
I'm thinking about using this also in my bitbake world builds and it's
also easier to enable it in config there, than parsing the log and
calling send-error-report from jenkins job config when report was
Should I use error-report-web installed on yoctoproject.org or create my own
