Unfortunately XVim sometimes crashes Xcode. We are working on eliminating all the bugs, but it's really hard work. It helps greatly when we have your bug reports, with the following information:
- Crash information ( Xcode shows threads stack trace when crashes. Copy them. )
- The operations you did to cause the crash ( series of key strokes or mouse clicks )
- The text you were manipulating
- Xcode version
- XVim version ( Version number of the revision you built )
When it is hard to solve a problem with information above, take debug log according to the following movie please.
We appreciate if you write test case for the bug. Read "Write test" section in Documents/Developsers/PullRequest.md how to write test case. You do not need to update any source code but just write 7 items explained there in an issue you create.
If you fix a bug by yourself and add new feature, see here.
XVim supports Bountysource. If you want to solve your issue sooner make bounty on your issue is one option. A contributer should work on it preferentially (not guaranteed though). To make bounty visit following link and go to "Issue" tab. Select your issue and make bounty on it.
If you think the plugin is useful, please donate. There are two options you can take. Donate for Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief or back the project via BountySource. There is no rule that you cannot take both :) .
Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief
Since I do not intend make money from this project, I am directing donations to the people suffering from the damage of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Please donate directly through the Paypal donation site below, as this will put more money to good use by reducing the transfer fee.
Since no messages are sent when you donate from the paypal link, you could also write a donation message on Message Board. I(we) would really appreciate it, and it will really motivate me(us)!
If you like to help and enhance the project directly consider backing this project via BountySource. You can back the team (which means you support the entire project) or you can make bounty on a specific issue. (If you have any bugs to be fixed or features to be implemented not in issues yet you can make one.)
