Where is the Github bug tracker located?

Postby MagicWazard » Thu Dec 29, 2016 9:46

So I've got a couple bugs to report that are occurring from 2.2 onwards, but the bug forum is closed; there's a forum post titled "Please use Github's bugtracker for future bug reports!", but it doesn't seem to say where exactly this is located. What's the link to the location where we can report bugs?

Incidentally, the DRD Team page for development builds still links to the old locked forum.

Here.

It's on the forum listing, as one of the links under GZDoom's description.

The old locked forum thing will change very soon - it will redirect to a new tracker once we have it all set up. For now things are the way they are because we are stuck in a temporary situation and I don't want to do too much work when it's all going to change in a few days anyway.

Oh, on the DRD Team page; I didn't see it. So, should I wait a few days until the new tracker is set up, or will all the existing open bugs be migrated over?

Please report them on the Github tracker. If I can get them out for the upcoming release, the better. I don't think the new tracker will be up in time.

@Graf: Slightly off-topic, but if you keep your links pointed at forum 24 (what the bugs forum used to link to - viewforum.php?f=24) they will automatically update to the tracker switch-over. I transformed that forum ID into a redirect (the Bugs Archive is actually in fact a new forum).

Thanks. That saves me from changing them all...

Am I correct in saying that to report a bug you have to create a GitHub account?

If so, surely that will put a number of people off?

That's one of the reasons we want our own tracker.

Well, I just saw 2.3.1 was up; I'll try that out and see if the same issues are occurring. If so, I'll make a Github account and report them within the next couple of days. (I didn't expect 2 releases to hit within the last week!)

The link doesn't seem to work anymore. Is the bug tracker is disabled? Trying to navigate to gzdoom/issues redirects to pull requests, and there's no issues tab like there was yesterday. I'm not sure how Github works but it was up yesterday morning, and I haven't found anything here or on the ZDoom forums about it.

We migrated to a Mantis bug tracker yesterday. The Github tracker was only used as a temorary means until that new tracker became operational. You can find it by following the "Bugs&Suggestions" link.

Just voicing a newcomer opinion here. I think GitHub issues would be helpful in getting more bug reports to GZDooM because GitHub is pretty popular among developers.
But I understand that it might put some (non-GitHub) users off.

Tried to search if there was any discussion on choosing Mantis bug tracker over GitHub issues, but could not find any, so I might not know all the details.

From a developer standpoint Mantis is better organized. It also doesn't require registration with a public service, where you never know where your email address ends up. And it allows having one tracker for multiple projects so bugs can be cross-assigned.

Thanks for the explanation. GitHub issues do seem kind of bare bone feature wise - especially when compared to something like Mantis. Didn't realize at first that Mantis is also used for other ZDooM variants.
