BUG REPORTSTo submit a bug report, send an e-mail to: Insomnia (Stea Greene) <email@example.com> with a subject line of: GATOS BUG: <brief description...> Then in the main body of the message: - Describe the bug in detail, including how to repeat the misbehavior, - Specify what version of GATOS and what version of IBTK you are using, - Then include a dump of "xatitv -v" (either as a MIME attachment or right in the message), - Include a patch of any changes you made to the code that may fix the problem. See PATCHES below, When a bug is fixed or if the bug report is not understood, you will get a reply, so make sure your message is properly reply-able.
PATCHESTo create a patch, first make sure you have a full tree of both the original and the modified trees (herin called "gatos-orig" and "gatos-new" respectively). Make sure each tree is clean by using: -> make distclean in EACH directory. Then change to the directory immediately above these two directories and use the following command: -> diff -ur gatos-orig gatos-new > gatos-new-patch Look at gatos-new-patch (with a text editor or viewer) and make sure nothing is changed that you didn't intend to be. You can submit this patch to me either included in an e-mail, or as a MIME attachment, or you can compress it and send it as a MIME attachment, as follows: Compress it with: -> gzip -9 gatos-new-patch Then send gatos-new-patch.gz to me as a MIME attachment. If there is a problem with the patch, or I have a question or the patch/description is not understood, you will get a reply, so make sure your message is properly reply-able.
