Bug reporting

What is a correct way to report a potential bug or other problem? I'm sorry if this a stupid question, but I'm afraid I'm not aware of the best way.

Actually there's a reason why I'm asking this, as I've discovered a trouble with world/bluez 5.50-5. It won't start, saying that it can't get to the dbus (log message:
Code: [Select]
 D-Bus setup failed: Connection ":1.2360" is not allowed to own the service "org.bluez" due to security policies in the configuration file
). Previous version from extra works totally OK.

A  bugtracker is a valid question. We currently only have issue system on our gitea, similar to gitbub issues.

If we were to set up a bugtracker, we would likely need people capable to do a bit of report management.
Since we take a majority of arch PKGBUILD, such management would involve to report/redirect issues found related to upstream arch, for example a missing makedepend, so we get some issues related to PKGBUILD back upstream. Anyhow, the bug team would have to know some details when to report a bug upstream arch, and when it is  an issue on our end.

Please share your thoughts on how artix should handle bug tracking.

Regarding the dbus issue you reported here, I think it is fixed now. It was likely an arch upstream issue.
I'll sticky this thread.

Some form of keeping tracks of bugs sounds like a good idea.

The biggest barrier to new user involvement in complex issues is the attitude of the project leaders.  So thank you for your views and attitude. ;)
Good instructions (and even 'hand-holding') for quality bug reports will be parmount but any new user that truly wishes to be involved will gladly learn from positive tutelage.
