We all agree that crashes are the most annoying bugs. If a software crashes, no work can get done, it looks unprofessional and is a really frustrating experience for users.

So, in order to tackle this, since LO has so many crashes, devs need to prioritize. Working on the most common crashes is a sane strategy.

To know which crashes are the most common, we need crash reporting.

moggi has implemented the server side for this and it's ready for usage also on OS X, but LO only has capability to send reports from Linux & Windows.

**Feature request**

Please add crash reporting capability to LO on OS X.

It's lacking... indeed. no Apple crash report.. no LibreOffice crash reporter.. nothing. Or a feature.. LibreOffice doesn't crash on MacOS ;-)

Breakpad is of course just a cheap plastic imitation of the real Apple crash reporter that works for products distributed through the App Store (like LibreOffice Vanilla).

(Not that the reports coming in from that are particularly useful, it seems.)
