How to write a nice bug report


#1

Reading through thisarticle gives you what is expected when you write a bug report.

When asking a question about a problem caused by your code, you will get much better answers if you provide code people can use to reproduce the problem. That code should be…

  • …Minimal – Use as little code as possible that still produces the same problem
  • …Complete – Provide all parts needed to reproduce the problem
  • …Verifiable – Test the code you’re about to provide to make sure it reproduces the problem

If your report does not fulfill those conditions, your report have to be “translated” by community moderators including me into something useful to find out if the bug is a new one, if it is consistently reproduced, etc., which often takes a lot of time.

Though every bug report is thankful, it is obvious that “the browser does not work” is not a good report. The ideal bug report is what you could forward it directly to the dev team; clear description, with necessary information, neither more nor less.

Here is a template you might want to use when you write a bug report.
