I'd really prefer to have some groupping, because otherwise the number
of reports will become not manageable in case there will be some
frequently hit bug in a release.

If you are able to reliably link similar issues together, it would make
sense to display them all at single page (possibly hiding some details
if there are too many of them).

Again, taking oops.kernel.org as an example:


So you can see that this bug on this kernel was hit by 6446 people with
three different backtraces.
