Register, Log in, and Apply for an Observer role

Report a bug in ArgoUML Step by step instruction on what to do:
  1. Search for the problem among the problems in the Issuezilla database.
  2. If found, add yourself as CC to the Issue and vote for it. You can then monitor its progress. You are done. This also qualifies you for closing the issue.
  3. If your problem is not found or some of your peculiarities or details is not included in the description, go on.
  4. Enter a new issue or add information to an already existing issue. Be sure to include what version of ArgoUML you are running, what version of jdk, all the steps that lead up to this, what happens, and what you expected to happen.
  5. Add attachments with more information to your newly created issue by revisiting it and clicking Create a new attachment. The extra information that might be relevant for the issue as attachments is screen shots, your project file, log files... If the problem is repeatable, rerun with debug logging enabled (java -Dlog4j.configuration=org/argouml/resource/full.lcf -jar argouml.jar) and add the log file argo_full.log from your home directory as attachment.
You will get updates via mail when someone comments or does something with your issue. If nothing happens, you can solve the issue yourself and describe the solution in the issue. When the issue is resolved or verified, close it after you have accepted the solution.

The life-cycle of issues and the roles of people handling them is described in the Cookbook Chapter 9.
