Reporting Bugs

Mailing Lists and USENET Newsgroup

   There are two mailing lists and one USENET newsgroup for discussing
GNUS related topics.  These are intended for exchanging useful
information about GNUS, such as bug reports, useful hooks, and
extensions of GNUS.  If you have any questions or problems, feel free to
ask about them.  Suggestions are also welcome.

     This is a USENET newsgroup under the gnu.all hierarchy which is
     concerned with the GNU Project of the Free Software Foundation.

     This is an Internet mailing list which is gated bi-directionally
     with the gnu.emacs.gnus newsgroup.  English is the official
     language of the list.  Please send subscription requests to:


     This is a JUNET mailing list.  Messages of info-gnus-english and
     gnu.emacs.gnus are forwarded to this list.  English and Japanese
     are the official languages of the list.  Please send subscription
     requests to:


   The major difference between info-gnus-english/gnu.emacs.gnus and
info-gnus is the official language.  There is no need to subscribe to
info-gnus if you cannot read messages written in Japanese since most
discussions and important announcements will be sent to

How to Report a Bug

   If you find a bug, it is important to report it and to report it in a
way which is useful.  If it is a bug of a lisp program, what is the most
useful is an exact backtrace information of the lisp program with the
version number of GNUS that you are using.

   To make the backtrace information, you must set the Emacs variable
`debug-on-error' to `t' before the error happens.  A backtrace obtained
from a byte-compiled lisp program is not usually understandable.  To
make a human readable backtrace, load the source program which is not
byte-compiled yet and then produce the error.
