Details

Right now mozcrash produces crash signatures, but it's fairly rough. Socorro does a few other things, as you can read in the URL. We should at least be able to do the normalization step to get closer to what Socorro provides. To get completely matching signatures we'll need to use the SkipList etc, which means we should probably just get bug 828452 fixed.

CC'ing Kris because she's been working on mozcrash and this would be nice to have.

We currently generate the "signatures" for the crashes detected by mozcrash with a very crude skip-list that mimics Socorro (see this and this).

Will made a Socorro's signature-generation functionality available as a stand-alone python module. It would be nice to integrate it in mozcrash so as to have the same signatures across both systems.

If the "Socorro signature generation as a Python module" isn't the right shape to help here, let me know. We also have bug #828452 to build a web api into Socorro for signature generation and maybe there are other options, too.

I'm obviously no longer involved in any of this but this sounds amazing. If someone does this it'd be great to have some way to ensure that Socorro and mozcrash don't drift out of sync as the signature generation config changes.
