Bugzilla - why, and how?

Bugzilla is free and open to anyone who registers with it. The big advantage here is that many users can share bug information, or view feature requests or planned new features and track these, in true open source fashion. From time to time we will also publish patched prerelease versions by attaching them to their relevant bugs.

With more complex bugs, to help us helping you better, you should also refer to the troubleshooting section. It describes how to create an error log.

When submitting new bug reports, please search first whether the bug is already submitted to avoid yours being marked as duplicate.
For feature requests, submit a bug and select "enhancement" in the severity dropdown:

For creating an error log, please check out the troubleshooting section.

1. When submitting new bugs, please search first whether the bug is already submitted to avoid yours being marked as duplicate.

Titles such as "bug report" or "compatibility problem" are not helpful.

TIP: Some examples for good bug titles are: "quoted body missing when replying", "feature request: add reply to sender for newsgroups".
