This brings us to the next issue, posting bugs /
bug reports on mailing
lists rather then bugzilla. This is a practice we would like to see
stopped and we will be gently reminding people if they continue posting
bugs on mailinglists, this especially includes if a package /
application breaks when updating tumbleweed / leap (including beta's).
We would ask that you search for your issue prior to reporting but in
case you accidentally report a duplicate bug its easy for us to mark it
as such, also if you report something that is intentional and not a bug
it doesn't take long to mark it as such, so if in doubt file a bug
rather then posting to a mailing list, there is useful information for
filing bugs at the following links . But if you are really stuck
with trying to file your bug the friendly people at opensuse-support(a)o.o
can support you through the process.
I don't get stuck "filing" bugs. I get stuck figuring out whether something
expected behavior, or constitutes a bug.
And that is where you should use opensuse-support@
Who's going to do all that extra triage work if
every time someone has that
dilemma and proceeds to file a bug instead of asking first? Mailing lists seem
to generate responses, useful or otherwise, faster. Bugs apparently get seen by
a select few, and are often ignored for long periods.
Just what constitutes "filing a bug" on a mailing list?
There are many posts on opensuse-factory@, that are along the lines of I
updated to the latest snapshot and XYZ broke, these are what we'd prefer
to have as bugreports.
I don't think these clarify, but at least indirectly may be inducing list
"filing". From the latter:
