Reporting Bugs

When mozkito crashes it provides some important information and a description of how to submit a bug report and which information should be provided. Please consider using this information to submit even better bug reports. Thank you!

Contributing Tests

We are also in a constant need of test cases and test scenarios. If you submit a bug report, please consider to include some kind of test case or test scenario that not only helps us to reproduce the reported issue but also to include that test into our test suite.
But even if you have not yet found a bug, you may have an interesting problem or data set at hand that may be interesting to test mozkito on. Please do not hesitate to contact us. If you even plan to contribute a full fledge test including code, please proceed to the contributing code section.
