Mailing lists and bug reports — Getting help with GNOME Print

Filing a bug report or feature request

If you encounter a bug, misfeature, or missing feature in GNOME Print, please file a bug report on http://bugzilla.gnome.org. We'd also appreciate reports of incomplete or misleading information in the GNOME Print documentation; file those against the "docs" component of the "gnome-print" product in Bugzilla.

Don't hesitate to file a bug report, even if you think we may know about it already, or aren't sure of the details. Just give us as much information as you have, and if it's already fixed or has already been discussed, we'll add a note to that effect in the report.

The bug tracker should definitely be used for feature requests, it's not only for bugs. We track all GNOME Print development in Bugzilla, so it's the way to be sure the GNOME Print developers won't forget about an issue.

Submitting Patches

If you develop a bugfix or enhancement for GNOME Print, please file that in Bugzilla as well. Bugzilla allows you to attach files; please attach a patch generated by the diff utility, using the -u option to make the patch more readable. All patches must be offered under the terms of the GNU LGPL license, so be sure you are authorized to give us the patch under those terms.

If you want to discuss your patch before or after developing it, mail gnome-print-list@gnome.org. But be sure to file the Bugzilla report as well; if the patch is only on the list and not in Bugzilla, it's likely to slip through the cracks.

Mailing lists

The GNOME Print mailing list is gnome-print-list@gnome.org. You can subscribe or view the archives of these lists on http://lists.gnome.org. FIXME: Is this comment true for gnome-print? --> If you aren't subscribed to the list, any message you post to the list will be held for manual moderation, which might take some days to happen.
