This is a bug tracker for the GNU Operating System. We use this to keep records of bug reports, as well as feature requests and patches, submitted by users and developers. Each issue is given a number, and is kept open until it is marked as having been dealt with.
See the usage notes if you are interested in using this tracker for your project. List of packages using this tracker.
Each project may have specific instructions on the best way to report a bug - see the list of packages. For example, to report a coreutils bug, just send a mail to bug-coreutils at gnu.org. Or you can send a mail to submit at debbugs.gnu.org, with "Package: coreutils" in the first line of the body. The two approaches are entirely equivalent.
Submissions are moderated, so there may be a delay before your report appears.
If you want to send a copy of your initial report to someone else, please use an X-Debbugs-CC header rather than plain CC, as explained in more detail here.
You do not need to know the details of how this bug tracker works in order to report bugs, but if you want to, you can read more about this tracker. To get help with using this tracker, you can send a mail to the help-debbugs mailing list.
If a report is closed and receives no more mail for one month, it is archived. Before you can send more mail to it, you must send the command "unarchive 123" in the body of a message to the control server address.
The same search fields are ORed, different fields are ANDed.
The individual bug mailing list archives (see links above) are also
searchable, and may contain older bug reports.
Finally, you can also use your preferred internet search engine to search site:debbugs.gnu.org.
