bug reporting

Richard Silverman
Hello,

I see that there are recent pull requests on the GitHub mirror for MIT Kerberos (https://github.com/krb5/krb5). Do you prefer to receive bug reports accompanied by proposed patches there, or still in RT via [hidden email]?

Thanks,

[This discussion might be more appropriate for [hidden email] as it
pertains to MIT krb5 development, but I will answer here.]

github is our preferred avenue for patches, while [hidden email] is
still our preferred avenue for big reports.  Ordinarily if you have both
in hand, it's fine to start with a github PR and we will create the bug
ticket retroactively with the commit.  But in the specific case of your
recently submitted bug report (#8579), I think some careful analysis of
the bug will be required before we know the appropriate design for the
fix, so a PR might be premature.

That all makes sense; I’ll wait for discussion in RT, then.

Thanks,
