Introduction

riscos.info accepts bug reports against any program hosted here, or against the site itself. These can includes obvious faults, feature requests, or the simplest of suggested fixes. Making these bugs readily available allows developers to prioritize issues, allow planning, and ensures tracking so that when a problem is fixed, both the reporter and developer know they can move on.

Reporting bugs also removes some burden from developers, as it helps ensure a consistent style and format that is not readily possible for example in email.

This section is still under going work. We hope to have more detailed instructions soon.
