I've seen a few crashers, but didnt obtain crash reports for them.
I did send you one ods.tgz dump, did it not point to a problem :)

What I still want to change is to have proper initscripts that replace
ods-control. It is really important that systemd can restart the ods
daemons when they crash, so you don't suddenly have expired RRSIGs.

I'm also unhappy with the current nsd/ods integration, but that's mostly
an issue with nsd and losing its original pid when using nsdc (the cause
of a few expired signatures), as well as the nsd/ods group restrictions.
I hope to give that more attention soon and fix it for the Fedora/RHEL
packages (which btw are 1.4.0a1)

I didn't get any abrtd reports, but I think those tend to not make it to
bugzilla unless people run it with an Xwindows session.
