Hummm, say, if you run syz-manager locally and report a bug, where
will the webserver and database that allows to download all satellite
info work? How long you need to keep this info and provide the web
service? You will also need to pay and maintain the server for... how
long? I don't see how this can work and how we can ask people to do
this. This frankly looks like overly complex solution to a problem
were simpler solutions will work. Keeping all info in a self-contained
file looks like the only option to make it work reliably.
It's also not possible to attribute kernel output to individual programs.
