Reporting Bugs

Faithful to our open-source bias, HylaFAX bugs are tracked using Bugzilla, a product of the Mozilla Project. Please do your best to make sure you've really found a bug, and then file it on the HylaFAX Bugzilla, located at To confirm a bug one should first check the mailing list archives for other reports of this issue (and possible resolution) and then post to the developers mailing list (described above). Security-related bugs should be reported to in order to avoid exploitation of the problem before it can be publicly resolved.
