CS615A -- Aspects of System Administration - Bugfiling Exercise

Submit a Bug Report to an Open Source Project

Select a piece of Open Source software that you use regularly and submit a bug report, Pull Request, documentation improvement or or feature enhancement.

Everybody can contribute to Open Source software, and everybody, regardless of their skill level can help improve the software or its documentation. Identify a problem, something that bothers you, a typo in an error message, or a real software bug and fix it!

To do this, you will need to research how the software project handles contributions and but reports, research what communications media it uses (mailing lists, slack, IRC, github, Bugzilla, ...) and find out how to best contribute.
