2 Filing a new issue

2.1 Before filing an issue

Before you file an issue, please do the following:

  • make sure you are using the development version of the project. It’s possible that you are not the first person experiencing a particular issue so we want to avoid duplicate issues.

  • make sure your issue is not already filed. Quickly look at the open issues of the repository or - if there are many open issues - do a quick keyword search. Filtering the issues according to labels might help.

2.2 Actually filing an issue

  • use a concise title for your issue that describes the problem. Don’t categories the issue with a keyword like “feature request: feature xyz”. This will be taken care of by the appropriate labeling from a collaborator of the repository.
  • create a minimal reproducible example (see also reprex) that showcases the offending behavior.
