Trying to answer Mathias's questions:

Some features that interesting (at least to me):

   1. If there is a bug, you can assign someone directly in the sentry
   (must be a user for sure) or even you can create a GitHub ticket if you set
   it up (not sure if there is a support for redmine).
   2. We can mark a bug as fixed in the next release. It's really useful to
   make thing automatic
   3. We can see how often a bug occurs (better planning to do bug fix),
   and some statistic and nice graph (and weekly overview)
   4. We can see a bug that occurs again (regression)
   5. The bug report can be set up to provide some environment information
   (version, OS, etc) *perhaps we can make it optional to the user

But I think we need to ask the user whether they want to "send the bug
report" automatically to the sentry or not, since it may contain some
private things.


Best Regards
