|SENDBUG(1)||General Commands Manual||SENDBUG(1)|
sendbugis used to submit problem reports (PRs) to the OpenBSD bugs database. A template PR is opened in a text editor with some system information already filled in, such as machine architecture, dmesg(8), usbdevs(8), pcidump(8), and acpidump(8). The pcidump(8) and acpidump(8) output are important for ACPI development and can only be included if
sendbugis run as root.
Fields enclosed in ‘<>’ should be completed by the user. Once the PR is filled out, the user exits the editor and is presented with a choice: a)bort, e)dit, or s)end. If abort is selected, the report is not deleted and the pathname of the report is printed. If edit is selected, the user is given a chance to re-edit the report.
If send is selected, the report is mailed to the bugs database, with a Cc to the author. Any follow up mail to the PR should keep the same mail subject.
The options are as follows:
sendbugto read a PR from the standard input, decode the files, and write them into the current directory.
VISUALtakes precedence. If neither
VISUALare set, the default is vi(1).
sendbugwas written from scratch for the public domain by Ray Lai <email@example.com>.
