Ok, the verification looks good. As per request I will be releasing this
slightly earlier - I think 5+ days is enough of a wait anyway.

Status in apport source package in Eoan:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:
  whoopsie-upload-all is not collecting data for existing crash reports which 
are not owned by root if /proc/sys/fs/protected_regular is set to 1. 
Subsequently, the crash reports are incomplete and not getting uploaded to the 
Error Tracker therefore Ubuntu developers may be missing out on important crash 

  [Test Case]
  1) Confirm /proc/sys/fs/protected_regular is set to 1.
  2) Run an application as your user and cause it to crash. (kill -11 $APP)
  3) Confirm there is a crash report in /var/crash
  4) Run 'sudo /usr/share/apport/whoopsie-upload-all'
  5) Observe the Traceback in this bug report is produced by 

  With the version of apport from -proposed the Traceback will not occur
  and a .uploaded file will be created for the corresponding .crash

  [Regression Potential]
  Not all systems may have /proc/sys/fs/protected_regular set to 1, so we 
should also test the case where /proc/sys/fs/protected_regular is set to 0. 
This can be done by manually changing the value and running through the test 
case above and confirming that a .uploaded file is created for the .crash file.
