Bug reporting guidelines


Bug reporting guidelines


Reporting bugs is a great way to contribute to Aegir and it helps all of us (developers and users both) shape Aegir into the fantastic Drupal management system we want and need.

Before reporting bugs

Mis-reporting bugs that are due to not following instructions or skipping steps, not providing enough information or duplicating reports, however, can be a distraction to the development team and waste precious resources. So, help out by following these guidelines for reporting bugs.

Before you report a bug, make sure you have done things right and are sure it's a bug, by reviewing the Getting help section, if only to include the right information in your bug report.

Where to report bugs

Somehow a bug or two may have slipped into Aegir. Eek! So it's really a bug? A new bug? To report it, file an issue on

  • Hosting (if the issue is in the frontend)
  • Provision (if the issue is in the backend) or
  • Hostmaster (if it is in the installer, a documentation bug, or if you don't know where the issue should go).
  • Eldir (if it's an issue with the default Eldir theme that ships with Aegir.)

Feature Requests

Feature requests are, of course, always welcome in these queues as well. To get an idea of where Aegir is headed with new features, you should first consult the Aegir Roadmap and Project Goals - we may be already on it!

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.
