fvwm-bug - report a bug in fvwm

fvwm-bug [--help] [--version] [address]

fvwm-bug is a shell script to help the user compose and mail bug reports concerning fvwm in a standard format. fvwm-bug invokes the editor specified by the environment variable EDITOR on a temporary copy of the bug report format outline. The user must fill in the appropriate fields and exit the editor. fvwm-bug then mails the completed report to the local fvwm maintainer, the fvwm workers list, or address. If the report cannot be mailed, it is saved in the file dead.fvwm-bug in the invoking user's home directory.

The bug report format outline consists of several sections. The first section provides information about the machine, operating system, the fvwm version, and the compilation environment. The second section should be filled in with a description of the bug. The third section should be a description of how to reproduce the bug. The optional fourth section is for a proposed fix. Fixes are encouraged.

fvwm-bug will utilize the following environment variables if they exist:
Specifies the preferred editor. If EDITOR is not set, fvwm-bug defaults to emacs.
Directory in which the failed bug report is saved if the mail fails.
