Bug trackers

How we use bug trackersEdit

OpenHatch indexes bugs in Free and Open Source software. We then help people find ways they can get involved.

We highlight bugs that are good for newcomers. We call all such bugs "bite-sized", but different bug trackers use different names (like "easy" or "papercut").

How to add a bug trackerEdit

As of June 2011, you can add most bug trackers from your project's OpenHatch page. To do that:

  • Register your project with the site by adding it to your profile
  • Visit https://openhatch.org/customs/ and choose your project's bug tracker type in the drop-down list. Click List Trackers.
  • On the resulting page, click Add a tracker.
  • Configure the settings appropriately for your project's bug tracker.

If you have questions about what to submit, ask a question on the forum.

In the past, we had to manually add each bug tracker by writing a bit of code. We're working through that list, slowly, but it is always best to use the automatic system if possible.

Do you need to tell us about another bug tracker to crawl? Click this link:
