How to write a useful bug report
================================
Please read at least the _Summary_ section of the great [How to Report Bugs
- The first aim of a bug report is to **let the developers reproduce the
failure**. Give them detailed instructions so that they can make it fail for
themselves.
- If that is not possible, try to **describe what went wrong in detail**.
Write down the error messages, especially if they have numbers in.
- Write **clearly and be precise**. Say what you mean, and make sure it
cannot be misinterpreted.
- Be ready to provide extra information if the developers need it. If they
did not need it, they would not be asking for it.
You can also refer to the great [How to Report Bugs
Effectively](http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html), by
Simon Tatham.
