    33  * '''No personal abuse.''' Haiku's Bug Tracker is a window into the world of Haiku development. The fact that we permit anyone with an account to add a comment does not mean you are allowed to harass, harangue or otherwise hassle contributors. Do not make weak threats like "I won't use Haiku until this bug is fixed!" If a respected project contributor complains about your behavior on this bug tracker, then your account may be disabled.

     5  * '''Not a forum''' This bug tracker is for reporting issues within Haiku's codebase. User-errors can be resolved through several other means of communication, such as an appropriate [http://www.haiku-os.org/community/ml mailing list] or [http://www.haiku-os.org/community/irc IRC Channel]. Any tickets deemed to be user-error will be closed as invalid.

    57  * '''No obligation.''' "Open Source" is not the same as "the developers must do my bidding." The only person who has any obligation to fix the bugs you want fixed is yourself. Never act as if you expect someone to fix a bug by a particular date or release. Not only is this obnoxious, it is likely to get the bug ignored.
     
    1113  * '''No private email.''' Unless the bug owner or another respected project contributor has asked you to email them with specific information, please place all information relating to bugs in the bug itself. Do not send them by private email; no-one else can read them if you do that, and they'll probably just get ignored.

    15   * '''Attachments''' As of now, Haiku's bug tracker does not send notification of new attachments on tickets. When posting a new attachment, it is preferred to also post a new comment on the ticket. This comment should indicate the nature and reason for the attachment. If a file is too big for our bug tracker, add a comment giving the file size and contents and ask what to do. Alternatively, you can provide a link to the attachment. Be prepared to generate an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Md5sum MD5sum checksum] (using "md5sum") in case an attachment is under the suspicion of being corrupted.

    1717  * '''Attachments: Include File Extensions''' Even though Haiku does not require file extensions, they are required for proper handling in this bug tracker. Including the proper file extension, will help to increase the productivity of other contributors.
