Using the issue tracker
Please respect the following restrictions:
Please do not use the issue tracker for personal support requests (email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please do not derail or troll issues. Keep the discussion on topic and respect the opinions of others.
A bug is a demonstrable problem that is caused by the code in the repository. Good bug reports are extremely helpful - thank you!
Guidelines for bug reports:
Use the GitHub issue search — check if the issue has already been reported.
Check if the issue has been fixed — try to reproduce it using the latest
masteror development branch in the repository.
Demonstrate the problem — provide clear steps that can be reproduced.
A good bug report should not leave others needing to chase you up for more information. Please try to be as detailed as possible in your report. What is your environment? What steps will reproduce the issue? What OS experienced the problem? What would you expect to be the outcome? All these details will help to fix any potential bugs.
Feature requests are welcome. But take a moment to find out whether your idea fits with the scope and aims of the project. It's up to you to make a strong case to convince the project's developers of the merits of this feature. Please provide as much detail and context as possible.
Good pull requests (patches, improvements, new features) are a fantastic help. They should remain focused in scope and avoid containing unrelated commits.
Please ask first before embarking on any significant pull request (e.g. implementing features, refactoring code, porting to a different language), otherwise you risk spending a lot of time working on something that might not get accepted into the project.
IMPORTANT: By submitting a patch, you agree to allow the project owner to license your work under the same license as that used by the project.
