Mailing lists and bug reports — Getting help with GMime
If you encounter a bug, misfeature, or missing feature in GMime, please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.gnome.org. We'd also appreciate reports of incomplete or misleading information in the GMime documentation; file those against the "docs" component of the "gmime" product in Bugzilla.
The bug tracker should definitely be used for feature requests, it's not only for bugs. We track all GMime development in Bugzilla, so it's the way to be sure the GMime developers won't forget about an issue.
If you develop a bugfix or enhancement for GMime, please file that in
Bugzilla as well. Bugzilla allows you to attach files; please attach a
patch generated by the diff utility, using the
-u option to make the patch more readable. All
patches must be offered under the terms of
license, so be sure you are authorized to give us the patch under
If you want to discuss your patch before or after developing it, mail email@example.com, but be sure to file the Bugzilla report as well, this way it's less likely to slip through the cracks.
There is currently only one mailing-list devoted to GMime itself which is for both the development of and development with GMime. You can subscribe to this list at http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gmime-devel-list.
