NAME
       fvwm-bug - report a bug in fvwm

SYNOPSIS
       fvwm-bug [--help] [--version] [address]

DESCRIPTION
       fvwm-bug is a shell script to help the user compose and mail bug
       reports concerning fvwm in a standard format.  fvwm-bug invokes the
       editor specified by the environment variable EDITOR on a temporary copy
       of the bug report format outline. The user must fill in the appropriate
       fields and exit the editor.  fvwm-bug then mails the completed report
       to the local fvwm maintainer, the fvwm workers list fvwm-
       workers@fvwm.org, or address.  If the report cannot be mailed, it is
       saved in the file dead.fvwm-bug in the invoking user's home directory.

       The bug report format outline consists of several sections.  The first
       section provides information about the machine, operating system, the
       fvwm version, and the compilation environment.  The second section
       should be filled in with a description of the bug.  The third section
       should be a description of how to reproduce the bug.  The optional
       fourth section is for a proposed fix.  Fixes are encouraged.

ENVIRONMENT
       fvwm-bug will utilize the following environment variables if they
       exist:

       EDITOR Specifies the preferred editor. If EDITOR is not set, fvwm-bug
              defaults to emacs.

       HOME   Directory in which the failed bug report is saved if the mail
              fails.
