Using the Issue Tracker

The issue tracker manages reports of technical problems (i.e., potential "Bugs" ) and requests for future enhancements (i.e. improvements ) concerning the program. In contrast to points of discussion in the Forum, issues are items that require a developer to revise the code of the program. In doubt, refer to the list of issue reports that were originally posted here the wiki and have then been transferred to the issue tracker.


Issues can be viewed anonymously, but creating a new issue or commenting on an existing issue requires the user to sign up and log into the issue tracker. Contact the site administrators if there are problems during registering or submitting a ticket.

C.1 Check To Do List 

Before reporting an issue, please first check for similar reports and in case leave a comment at the corresponding ticket (i.e., "BARNA-XXX"). A known issue can be OPEN, for example if the described scenario has not yet been confirmed and/or if the priority is low, or marked IN PROGRESS if a developer is already working on a solution. In either case, you might leave a comment at the corresponding report to help the developers in reproducing and prioritizing the issue correctly.

C.2 Review Done Issues 

If there is no report of an unresolved issue similar to the scenario you are experiencing, please further skim the RESOLVED tickets for possible workarounds or problems that were not satisfactorily resolved. Moreover, there can exist issue reports that have been marked "resolved" without providing a real solution, for instance if the issue describes a scenario that is not an error respectively not a desirable improvement, or where the solution is not done through changes in the code (i.e., "Won't fix").
