[Phpmyadmin-devel] Treat error reports individually or as groups

Error reports are submitted individually and are stored individually
in the database. however I am not sure of the usage statistics of
phpmyadmin however exceptions happen and an automated report system is
bound to send a huge amount of error reports.

The system should be able to mark a report as related to another
report either manually or hopefully automatically with some degree of
effectiveness. When a developer views an error report should I display
only the information in that error report or should I show the info in
related error reports as well. for example if this specific report
came from a chrome browser and just provide links at the
bottom to related reports or I can show the browser versions in
related error reports as well.

The good thing about showing the related info in the same report is
that the developer may be able to see patterns to help diagnose the
problem however the problems is that it would clutter the interface
and there may be alot of differences in the reports that every report
is different and there may be a 1000 different browser versions
affected in the related reports if for example it has nothing to do
with browser versions.
