Description oklaspec 2017-01-14 16:46:20 UTC
Hi Team!

There is no documentation about how to use
command line interface to access to 
bug tracking and problem report system.

There is recommenedation to use devel/pybugz package here:

It would be good to write little remark how to use bugz,
with details specific to FreeBSD, some thin like this:

It is very important that there are no further obstacles
to send patches and bug reports. And to make the development 
process easy and comfortable.

(This is copy of bug #200514 becouse it have no responce for a years)

There is also sysutils/scarab and many others. I always have double feelings when "recommending" one software or the other. What works for you does not necessarily have to work for everyone. Also, the more we list the harder it gets to maintain docs in that way. Where do you recommend we add it, the ports handbook for example?

FreeBSD Wiki under the Bugzilla/ namespace until such time as we're in a steady state, with known support/maintenance statuses for available options/tools.

Thanks for the suggestion Koobs, how can changes to the wiki be submitted?

(In reply to Dries Michiels from comment #4)

Documentation::Wiki components here in Bugzilla, or one can create an account and have free'er reign (this is the most productive course of action). /join #freebsd-wiki (freenode IRC) and see topic for how to request an account. We can help you there

Ok cool, I got a wiki account! Now its a matter of choosing where to document it under the Bugzilla namespace.

I was thinking of adding a new page under resources: "Tools to interact with Bugzilla" keeping an up to-date list there. Thoughts? Or are there any other locations that could already fit this documentation. I did a fast sweep of the pages but didn't really stumble on one.
