How can I track a bug that caused a crash and was reported via apport / whoopsie?

Since I updated to 12.04 apport sends crash reports to the server silently without opening a bug report page on launchpad while I'd like to track this reports statuses. How can I achieve this?

For me it works in ubuntu 12.04 (final release) to edit /etc/apport/crashdb.conf and add 'Crash' to the 'problem_types': ['Bug', 'Package', 'Crash']

could this be the answer to my query… and if so does it still work in 14.04 onwards? (it looks like it is deliberately not an apport feature?) – d3vid Oct 7 '14 at 13:50
