Rules for filing a bug report

  1. Use Plain English.

  2. Use grammatically correct English.

  3. Please don’t use slang, short-hand, or SMS-speak.

  4. Explain things. Assume that the person reading your report is a six-year old.

  5. Please mention how often the bug occurs (always, seldom, rarely, intermittently).

  6. Can you reliably re-create the situation that leads-up to the bug? If so, please list down the steps, in detail.

Thanks for listening.

    Step 4 is imp. Be Explicit. Documenting bug using Trac etc is good.
