  • Also, uservoice.com is an interesting forum for discussion of new feature requests (but not bug reports).
  • If Finance::Quote is not working correctly - you can test it by using the gnc-fq-* command line tools - use their Request Tracker at the Comprehensive Perl Archive Network (CPAN).

Using Bugzilla

There is a specific GnuCash "product" subsection which allows you to specifically search for GnuCash bugs. You can use the following quick links to perform actions on the GnuCash Bugs Database:

You might probably read the FAQ section about bug reporting before you continue ...
Also bugzillas help has useful parts.

If a program crash or freeze only happens on a specific file like

  • data file
  • import file
  • (modified) report

it can be useful to attach a copy of that file to your bug report, but:

  • It is easier, if you attach your XML data file uncompressed. It can then already be seen in the web interface.
  • If the file contains confidential data do not forget to anonymize your data e.g. with the ObfuscateScript.
  • If the file is really big, try to create a minimal example.

When uploading adjust the mime type of your file:

  • Uncompressed gnucash data files are of type text/xml,
  • most import files are of type text/plain.

If a developer asked you for some information or one of the files above and you attached them, do not forget, to reset the bug status from needinfo to unconfirmed again.

Bug Triage

For people, which like to help us e.g. on bug triage, are some additional informations in QA/BugzillaAdministration.
