Help using the bugtracking system

Every good bug report needs exactly four things.

  1. Specify the environment,
  2. Steps to reproduce,
  3. What you expected to see, and 
  4. What you saw instead.

Principles

  • Be precise
  • Be clear – explain it so others can reproduce the bug
  • One bug per report
  • No bug is too trivial to report – small bugs may hide big bugs
  • Clearly separate fact from speculation
