Reporting Bugs

There are several ways to report a bug, the best way is to join and use the Gramps Bug Tracker, see How to report bugs. This allows us to follow a formal method of tracking and resolving your report. Due to the high volume of email that the primary developers receive, there is always a chance that an email may slip through the cracks. Using the bug tracker will make sure that your issue will be handled.

Alternatively you can join the the Gramps Bugs mailing list and send a detailed report.

Requesting Enhancements

Requesting an enhancement can be done by creating a feature item on the bug tracker, or the gramps-users or gramps-devel mailing lists. We would prefer that serious requests get submitted to the bug tracker. You switch to Project: Feature Requests on the top right head corner, and select Report Issue. Again, this allows us to formally track the request.
