Reporting Bugs

   Your bug reports play an essential role in making GNU Fortran
reliable.
   When you encounter a problem, the first thing to do is to see if it
is already known.  *Note Trouble::.  If it isn't known, then you should
report the problem.
   Reporting a bug might help you by bringing a solution to your
problem, or it might not.  (If it does not, look in the service
directory; see *Note Service::.)  In any case, the principal function
of a bug report is to help the entire community by making the next
version of GNU Fortran work better.  Bug reports are your contribution
to the maintenance of GNU Fortran.
   Since the maintainers are very overloaded, we cannot respond to every
bug report.  However, if the bug has not been fixed, we are likely to
send you a patch and ask you to tell us whether it works.
   In order for a bug report to serve its purpose, you must include the
information that makes for fixing the bug.
