       fvwm-bug - report a bug in fvwm


       fvwm-bug [--help] [--version] [address]


       fvwm-bug  is  a  shell  script  to  help  the user compose and mail bug
       reports concerning fvwm in a standard  format.   fvwm-bug  invokes  the
       editor specified by the environment variable EDITOR on a temporary copy
       of the bug report format outline. The user must fill in the appropriate
       fields  and  exit the editor.  fvwm-bug then mails the completed report
       to  the  local  fvwm  maintainer,   the   fvwm   workers   list   fvwm-,  or  address.   If the report cannot be mailed, it is
       saved in the file dead.fvwm-bug in the invoking user’s home  directory.

       The  bug report format outline consists of several sections.  The first
       section provides information about the machine, operating  system,  the
       fvwm  version,  and  the  compilation  environment.  The second section
       should be filled in with a description of the bug.  The  third  section
       should  be  a  description  of  how to reproduce the bug.  The optional
       fourth section is for a proposed fix.  Fixes are encouraged.
