Report Bugs the Debian Way


At the moment, this link is a brand new entry on The Debian User blog, and I wouldn't be surprised to see it show up as an LXer link, but I think it should be in this forum, as well.

I have occasionally wondered about submitting a bug report, but hesitated because I wasn't sure whether or not I'd be making some sort of foolish statement.

This howto is very reassuring. http://blog.thedebianuser.org/?p=145

I have filed a few and can verify that report bug makes it easy.

The new version in Sid even pulls existing bugs to make sure you are not duplicating one.

Another useful feature is to go to a bug report and you can add yourself to the mailing list for that bug.

Gives you quick access to patches and saves you from checking the page every day.

It is useful for me on wishlist bugs like http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=382334
