Bugs.swift.org usage


(William Dillon) #1

Now that I’ve published a tarball of the ARM swift compiler, I’m getting some messages about this or that not working. I’m curious about the intended usage/audience of bugs.apple.com <http://bugs.apple.com/>. Should I encourage people to file bug reports, or do you only want bugs relating to the supported platforms in there?

I think it’s fine to file bugs around larger community projects, so long as they’re on a track to becoming part of the swift.org <http://swift.org/> effort (i.e. you don’t intend it to be a permanent fork).

I agree.

To further add to what Chris said, note that contributions to support a port don't need to remain in a fork before the platform becomes "officially supported". We'd prefer that the necessary work to support a port happens in the main repository if possible. People can use forks to do experimentation, etc., but once the bring up starts reaching some critical mass I think it is valuable to get those changes into the main repository long before the port is "done".
