Bug tracking [Jul. 22nd, 2004|12:19 am]


Following some updates from Ari, I noticed that the Debian bug tracking system contains several reports for LogJam. In the future, please submit bug reports here or in logjam_dev, or if you prefer email, logjam at forum2 dot org (unless, of course, the problem is specific to Debian). Neither evan nor I attend the Debian BTS with any regularity, so submitting your reports in the ways just described will prove more effective in getting them fixed.

The Debian maintainer should be forwarding the bug reports to the upstream channels, at least those that aren't specific to the Debian package or that they can't take care of themselves.

Debian encourages users to do this since it helps avoid upstream getting pestered with bugs resulting from Debian (either the packaging or interactions with other parts of the system, for example). It also helps encourage users to provide feedback on packages by providing a single place to report bugs (rather than them having to figure out where to put them).

If you're not seeing bug reports that go via the BTS it's because the maintainer isn't forwarding them as they should, not because users are sending them to the wrong place. I do recall seeing a bunch of Debian bugs discussed here so I suspect that is actually happening, they've just not been marked as forwarded because they weren't e-mailed.
