    A bug report should contain (at minimum):

    1) the host OS
    2) the version of packages involved
    3) the exact command run to trigger the bug
    4) related configuration files

    But, since this isn't a bug report medium, I suspect you'll have better luck at the relevant OS forums or bug tracker...or even in the forums.

    I'd go for

    1) what was used (hostname + OS + application program + username + remote website involved etc etc)
    2) what you did
    3) what happened (obviously includes an unexpected thing you're calling a bug)
    4) how that differs from what you expected

    You need all those elements since I've had bug reports like this
    "The program I compiled is not executable."
    "How do you reckon that?"
    "It's got no * next to the name in ls output."
