Submissions should be written in English.

Submitting a Bug

Before submitting a bug report here, please make sure:

  • that you're using an appropriate Rails version (see RedmineInstall)
  • that your database is up to date, especially if you've just migrated from a previous version or revision (see RedmineUpgrade)
  • if your problem is related to svn (or any other scm), that the proper binaries are installed on your Redmine host (see RedmineRepositories)

And have a look at the bug list and the FAQ to see if it has not already been reported.

When filling a bug report, please give the following information with the description of your problem:

  • your database manager version (eg. PostgreSQL 8.2)
  • your Ruby version (eg. Ruby 1.8.7)
  • your Rails version (eg. Rails 2.3.11)
  • your Redmine version (pick the version number in the Affected version field) and the exact revision (eg. r1142) if you're using repository code
  • your scm binary version (eg. svn 1.4) if your problem is about scm integration
  • your using plugins (eg. Code Review plugin)

The simplest way to get information about your environment is to run the following command from within your Redmine installation:

ruby script/about

Also, when reporting an application error, post the error stack trace that you should find in the log file (eg. log/production.log). The message displayed by the application (eg. ...An error occurred on the page you were trying to access...) is useless here.

If the error you're reporting occurs when running a rake task (example: rake db:migrate), rerun the task with the --trace option (example: rake db:migrate --trace) and post the full output.

Submitting a Security Vulnerability

If you think that you've found a security vulnerability, please report it by sending an email to: security(at)redmine.org. Known vulnerabilities that were fixed in Redmine releases are listed on the Security Advisories.

Submitting a Feature Request

Before submitting a feature request here, please make sure:

  • fill the subject as a sum up of your description
  • fill the description as detailed as you can, don't hesitate to describe precisely how this feature should behave, try to add what benefits you're excepting from it
  • please DON'T fill the target version field: let the developers decide when integrate
  • please DON'T assign the feature request to anybody, let the developers deal with it

Submitting a Wiki improvement

When you edit a wiki page to improve its content, make sure that you fill the comment field with a descriptive summary of the changes you've made to the page. This way we'll be better able to "monitor" and "maintain" the quality of the actual wiki content.

Submitting a Patch

  • Changes should be submitted as a single patch file. Instructions for creating a patch using svn can be found here.
  • You should mention the branch/revision your patch is based on and attach it
