An issue tracker is an application that users and developers use to maintain a database of bugs, requests for enhancement and development tasks that the project members must work to resolve. The Firebird Project uses the JIRA issue tracking software
for this purpose. If you don't have any experience with JIRA, please refer to its User's Guide
Click the underneath image to access the issue tracker:We would like to encourage you to read How to Report Bugs Effeciently before you submit any bug report!
Simon Tatham is not a Firebird Project member, but his article is excellent and it would be pointless to try writing a better one.
Also, make sure that the issue to be entered hasn't been reported priorly. Use the search facilities of the tracker for that purpose.
When creating the new ticket in the tracker, you have to choose the project and the issue type. The former represents the Firebird sub-project you are working with. The "Firebird Core" project means the server itself (including the client library and utilities), the rest of the project names speak for themselves. In the second step, please specify the affected component(s) and version(s), and finally provide as much detailed description as possible, including the hardware and software environment used to demonstrate the issue.
Once logged in the tracker, you can also use the Jira voting facilities in order to inform the developers about your favorite features or most annoying bugs and thus affect their implementation schedule.
