''' Reporting bugs '''

We like to fix bugs in OTR software. If it's not Debian specific, we'll forward it to upstream. An example of a bug email can be found below.

  To: submit@bugs.debian.org
  From: diligent@testing.linux.org
  Subject: Pidgin-otr crashes when receiving "NULL" in the OTR version handler

  Package: pidgin-otr
  Version: 3.2.1-3+deb7u1

  When Bob starts an OTR conversation with Alice and sends Alice an OTR version
  handler with a "NULL", Pidgin-OTR as a plugin crashes.

  Here is my GDB output:


  I suggest that "NULL" be caught in a signal handler.

  I am using Debian GNU/Linux 7, kernel 3.2.0-4-amd64
  and libc6 2.13-38+deb7u1.

== Tools and processes ==

 * We are maintaining the packaging in Git with git-buildpackage and pristine-tar.
 * Whenever possible, use the upstream signed Git tag as the canonical upstream release, and generate the tarball ourselves.
 * We are using source format 3.0 (quilt).
 * We don't apply patches to the upstream source that have not been submitted upstream yet.
