Re: Reporting bugs upstream

On top of that, quite often when someone experiences a problem in a

to hopefully see the issue eventually fixed by someone, but also
quite often hoping to expend the absolute minimal amount of effort
to report the problem _anywhere_ as soon as possible, to make it
someone elses problem real fast, and wash their hands of it.

Yeah,
$ rpm --erase {buggy_package}
$ curl {latest package from upstream}
$ tar -xzf ...
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install
$ if {problem not fixed}:
   contact upstream
