» Reporting Packman package bugs

Coincidence or not, recently I ran into several people (on IRC or on openSUSE mailing-lists) who did not know how to report bugs for packages from the Packman repository. So, once and for all, here is how to do it: just send an email to It's an open mailing-list you may (but don't have to) subscribe. Obviously, this also works for package requests, informing us about new upstream releases of your favourite packages (in case we didn't notice, as unfortunately not all projects report releases to sites such as freshmeat), but also for telling us that a package works great for you. Well, feedback in general. One must always keep in mind that most people in the Packman packager team maintain several hundreds of packages and, obviously, we can only test a fraction of them. Hence, we're interested in any feedback, positive and negative. So if you want to do your part in having high quality packages there, please take a few minutes to send us feedback about them -- remember that this is a collaborative process ;)
