Fixing a bug

If you would like to fix a bug yourself, please follow these steps:

  1. Assign the bug in our Bug Tracker to yourself (if you have access to do this)
  2. Solve the problem in source code. (It's easiest if you make your changes against the Opie git tree.)
  3. Test the fix
  4. Commit the fix in your local git repository.
  5. Submit the change, using one of the following options:
  6. When the changes appear in the Opie Git repository on Github, change the bug status to Resolved.
  7. Add an entry to the top level [[ChangeLog]] file in the Opie git repository. Adopt the entry from the commit message:
  8. BugFix: #0815 - short problem-description
    
  9. After the fix has been reviewed (and possibly after the version containing the fix has been released) the bug status can be set to Closed.
