NAME

bashbug - report a bug in bash

SYNOPSIS

bashbug [ --help] [--version] [bug-report-email-addresses]

DESCRIPTION

bashbug is a utility for reporting bugs in Bash to the maintainers.
bashbug will start up your preferred editor with a preformatted bug report template for you to fill in. Save the file and quit the editor once you have completed the missing fields. bashbug will notify you of any problems with the report and ask for confirmation before sending it. By default the bug report is mailed to both the GNU developers and the Debian Bash maintainers. The recipients can be changed by giving a comma separated list of bug-report-email-addresses.
If you invoke bashbug by accident, just quit your editor. You will always be asked for confirmation before a bug report is sent.
