There is a wiki page on how to report bugs found in ImageJ, but it is nearly totally incorrect. The “Help -> Report a Bug” menu in ImageJ now shows a dialog which reads:
This functionality is currently undergoing a redesign.
If you need immediate assistance please see the ImageJ help resources at:
The wiki page also has a link to Fiji’s BugZilla instance. If you click that link, you are redirected to Fiji’s Github issues page.
If nothing else, the text on the wiki page needs to be updated.
More importantly, there seem to be many possible places to post bugs, and there is no clear way to choose which place. Here is a list of places I found that looked like appropriate places for posting bugs:
- the issues (
http://forum.imagej.net/c/issues) section of the forum (right here!)
- Fiji’s Github issues page
- the ImageJ Github issues page
- the ImageJ1 Github issues page
- the ImageJ mailing list
- the ImageJ Trac
http://trac.imagej.net/ (which looks like it should have some sort of “abandoned, go to this new link!” posted on the front page)
- the ImageJ Google Group
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/imagej (also looks very abandoned)
- the subreddit
https://www.reddit.com/r/ImageJ/ (do the developers ever look here?)
Given all of these possible resources, how can an ImageJ user or plugin developer determine where is the most appropriate place to post their bug?
