6. Reporting Bugs and Problems

Bugs and problems with TRAMP are actively worked on by the development team. Feature requests and suggestions are also more than welcome.

The TRAMP mailing list is a great place to get information on working with TRAMP, solving problems and general discussion and advice on topics relating to the package. It is moderated so non-subscribers can post but messages will be delayed, possibly up to 48 hours (or longer in case of holidays), until the moderator approves your message.

The mailing list is at tramp-devel@gnu.org. Messages sent to this address go to all the subscribers. This is not the address to send subscription requests to.

Subscribing to the list is performed via the TRAMP Mail Subscription Page.

To report a bug in TRAMP, you should execute M-x tramp-bug. This will automatically generate a buffer with the details of your system and TRAMP version.

When submitting a bug report, please try to describe in excruciating detail the steps required to reproduce the problem, the setup of the remote machine and any special conditions that exist. You should also check that your problem is not described already in See section 7. Frequently Asked Questions.

If you can identify a minimal test case that reproduces the problem, include that with your bug report. This will make it much easier for the development team to analyze and correct the problem.
