fvwm-bug - report a bug in fvwm


fvwm-bug [--help] [--version] [address]


fvwm-bug is a shell script to help the user compose and mail bug reports concerning fvwm
in a standard format. fvwm-bug invokes the editor specified by the environment variable
EDITOR on a temporary copy of the bug report format outline. The user must fill in the
appropriate fields and exit the editor. fvwm-bug then mails the completed report to the
local fvwm maintainer, the fvwm workers list fvwm-workers@fvwm.org, or address. If the
report cannot be mailed, it is saved in the file dead.fvwm-bug in the invoking user's home

The bug report format outline consists of several sections. The first section provides
information about the machine, operating system, the fvwm version, and the compilation
environment. The second section should be filled in with a description of the bug. The
third section should be a description of how to reproduce the bug. The optional fourth
section is for a proposed fix. Fixes are encouraged.


fvwm-bug will utilize the following environment variables if they exist:

EDITOR Specifies the preferred editor. If EDITOR is not set, fvwm-bug defaults to emacs.

HOME Directory in which the failed bug report is saved if the mail fails.
