+## Issue tracker
+
+The [issue tracker](https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/issues) is only for obvious bugs or misbehavior in the master branch of GitLab. When submitting an issue please conform to the issue submission guidelines listed below.
+
+Please send a pull request with a tested solution or a pull request with a failing test instead of opening an issue if you can. If you're unsure where to post, post to the [Support Forum](https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/gitlabhq) first. There are a lot of helpful GitLab users there who may be able to help you quickly. If your particular issue turns out to be a bug, it will find its way from there.
+
+### Issue tracker guidelines
+
+**Search** for similar entries before submitting your own, there's a good chance somebody else had the same issue or idea. Show your support with `:+1:` and/or join the discussion.
+
+* Summarize your issue in one sentence (what goes wrong, what did you expect to happen)
+* Describe your issue in detail
+* How can we reproduce the issue on the [GitLab Vagrant virtual machine](https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlab-vagrant-vm) (start with: vagrant destroy && vagrant up && vagrant ssh)
+* Add the last commit sha1 of the GitLab version you used to replicate the issue
+* Add logs or screen shots when possible
+* Link to the line of code that might be responsible for the problem
+* Describe your setup (use relevant parts from `sudo -u gitlab -H bundle exec rake gitlab:env:info`)
