Reporting bugs

There are several ways to report a bug, including the GRAMPS Bugs mailing list. You do not have to be a member of this list to post.

However, the best way to report a bug is to 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 either through the gramps-users or gramps-devel mailing lists, or by creating a feature item 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. Again, this allows us to formally track the request.

Mailing lists

There are several mailing lists on various topics related to GRAMPS:

  • gramps-announce (subscribe, archives
    Announcements and general important news items. Very low traffic.
  • gramps-bugs (subscribe, archives)
