Finding and reporting bugs is a excellent way to help improve PyGTK. If you think something is not working properly, you can ask on the mailing list or on the IRC channel; if a bug is in fact detected, the best way to ensure it is tracked and fixed is to file a bug report on GNOME's Bugzilla server.

To file a report follow these simple steps:

  1. Create an account in Bugzilla at Gnome if you don't have one yet.
  2. Visit the pygtk, the pyorbit or the gnome-python bug creation page, depending on which product your bug seems to present itself in.
  3. Fill in as much information as you can in the Enter Bug form. A good Summary and Description are essential towards having your bug reproduced and fixed; testcases and code snippets are also very welcome.
  4. After clicking on the 'Submit Bug Report' you will be taken to the bug report itself. You can add comments, CC: other people, or attach files to the bug report. Useful files are small code examples that reproduce the bug, or stack traces of crashes.

As Christian Reis likes to say, "If you won't do it for me, do it for the kittens"
