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.

Requesting Enhancements

Requesting an enhancement can be done by creating a feature request on the bug tracker. 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. This allows us to formally track the feature request.


There is a Discourse forum for Gramps. You can use the forum to ask questions and get help from the Gramps community as well as keeping up to date with the latest development plans. The forum has a mailing list mode if you prefer to receive and reply to messages via email.
