How do you report bugs?

Post by NovaCoder »

As per the subject line?

I found the bug tracker on SoureForge but I don't have permission to add new bugs, so how is this possible?

Did you join & create a login for sourceforge?

I tried and it gave me an error message, I think you need to be invited to join the team first.

Oh well, guess I'll just fix the bug for my port only :twisted:

No, you don't need to be invited (unless sourceforge distinguishes between user and developer, but still...)

You just have to create a simple sourceforge.net account, then you can add bugs to your hearts desire.

What was/is the error message?
Maybe the username you chose is simply already given?

It sounds to me like you are trying to sign up as a ScummVM developer on Sourceforge...

As Raziel says you just need a standard Sourceforge account, nothing special.
