When you decide that there is a bug, it is important to report it in a useful way in our forge.

What is most useful is an exact description of what commands you executed, until the problem happens.

If you feel the command and the stack trace are too long, you can use a paste software. For example, our forge proposes one. That's easier to discuss it in the #swh-devel irc channel by referencing it or even attach it to the task.

There is a bot in the irc channel which will automatically create a summary of the task/paste when mentioned. In the forge, automatic linking happens when mentioning phabricator objects.
