Submitting a Bug¶
How to report bugs effectively
This document contains general information about submitting a bug report. Please read it carefully.
- that you're using the last version of BEEM
- your Android device
- your Android version
- your Beem version (pick the version number in the Affected version field) and the exact revision (eg. r1142) if you're using repository code
- the error stack trace that you should find in the log file if your report is about an error. The message displayed by the app (eg: ...An error occurred when trying to connect...) is useless here
If you have access to an Android SDK, please give the stacktrace of the crash. You can obtain it by typing in a console when the phone is plugged on your computer:
$> adb logcat
You can also use the application alogcat available on the Android Market.
The simplest way to get information about your Android version is:
Settings -> About Phone -> Model Number + Model Version
Submitting a Feature Request¶Before submitting a feature request here, please make sure:
- fill the subject as a sum up of your description
- fill the description as detailed as you can, don't hesitate to describe precisely how this feature should behave, try to add what benefits you're excepting from it
- please DON'T fill the target version field: let the developers decide when integrate
- please DON'T set a high priority, let the developers deal with it
- please DON'T assign the feature request to anybody, let the developers deal with it
Submitting a Wiki improvement¶
When you edit a wiki page to improve its content, make sure that you fill the comment field with a descriptive summary of the changes you've made to the page. This way we'll be better able to "monitor" and "maintain" the quality of the actual wiki content.
The prefered way to submit code is to make a mercurial pull request. Submit an issue to the "Pull request" tracker. Don't forget to fill the repository field and add a descriptive summary of your changes. Please specify also the revision you wish us to pull.Alternatively, you can submit changes by sending us a patch:
- Changes should be submitted as a single patch file. Instructions for creating a patch using mercurial can be found here
- You should mention the branch/revision your patch is based on and attach it
