Report bugs

So you're using it and you've found a bug, that's great! Yes, Great. Because a bug found is a bug in the way of being fixed. Please do report it - reports via the GitHub issues system are preferred as our development is coordinated on GitHub, but bug reports to the queue or on the mailing list are fine too.

Submit Patches

Okay, so you've found a bug and after having forked the project on GitHub you have a written patch to submit the fix, that's really great. At the time, the best way to get a review is to send a pull request on GitHub.

(If you're not a GitHub user or don't want the hassle of forking the repo, patches submitted via email to the mailing list are appreciated too, but pull requests via GitHub are much easier for us to track and apply, and thus have a much better chance of being applied!)


If you want to support the team, you can also donate - donations will be used to support development efforts, for instance paying for travel to conferences etc.
