ofb - OSAF FeedBack Server

ofb is the server component of the feedback mechanism in Chandler. When Chandler experiences an error, it pops up a feedback dialog, and the user can submit this report to OSAF. It goes to ofb, where it is stored and can be queried etc.

The Chandler usage tracking is also captured by ofb, as are some server performance tests.

No known bugs, please add bugs here:


Keeping the scope lightweight, and waiting until there is more usage before additional features are clearly needed.

A "search" function is needed before OSAF's Preview launch, though.


Q: Is this related to the Talkback thing Mozilla uses?

A: It fills a similar purpose, but is completely different code.
