bug#6503: 24.0.50; emacs manual does not mention debbugs.gnu.org


From: Gregor Zattler
Subject: bug#6503: 24.0.50; emacs manual does not mention debbugs.gnu.org

The manual explains how to search for already known bugs in
etc/Problems or in the FAQ.  Since there is now a online bug tracker
for emacs it should be mentioned in the manual.

In section "Reporting Bugs" the third paragraph states:

>    Before reporting a bug, it is a good idea to see if it is already
> known.  You can find the list of known problems in the file
> `etc/PROBLEMS' in the Emacs distribution; type `C-h C-p' to read it.
> Some additional user-level problems can be found in *note Bugs and
> problems: (efaq)Bugs and problems.  Looking up your problem in these
> two documents might provide you with a solution or a work-around, or
> give you additional information about related issues.

I propose the following change after the third sentence:

>    Before reporting a bug, it is a good idea to see if it is already
> known.  You can find the list of known problems in the file
> `etc/PROBLEMS' in the Emacs distribution; type `C-h C-p' to read it.
> Some additional user-level problems can be found in *note Bugs and
> problems: (efaq)Bugs and problems.  
If you don't find your bug in these two documents you may also search
the emacs bugtracker which is online accessible under
http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/pkgreport.cgi?package=emacs.  Don't feel
intimidated by the sheer number of bugs: There is a search form at the
end of that page.  You may also search for bugs via
http://debbugs.gnu.org/index.html#search.  Looking up your problem in
these sources might provide you with a solution or a work-around, or
give you additional information about related issues.


Sorry, no patch.

Thanks for emacs.  
Regards, Gregor
