git-bugreport - Collect information for user to file a bug report
'git bugreport' [(-o | --output-directory) <path>] [(-s | --suffix) <format>]
Captures information about the user's machine, Git client, and repository state,
as well as a form requesting information about the behavior the user observed,
into a single text file which the user can then share, for example to the Git
mailing list, in order to report an observed bug.
The following information is requested from the user:
- Reproduction steps
- Expected behavior
- Actual behavior
The following information is captured automatically:
- 'git version --build-options'
- uname sysname, release, version, and machine strings
- Compiler-specific info string
- A list of enabled hooks
Additional information may be gathered into a separate zip archive using the
`--diagnose` option, and can be attached alongside the bugreport document to
provide additional context to readers.
This tool is invoked via the typical Git setup process, which means that in some
cases, it might not be able to launch - for example, if a relevant config file
is unreadable. In this kind of scenario, it may be helpful to manually gather
the kind of information listed above when manually asking for help.
-o <path>::
--output-directory <path>::
Place the resulting bug report file in `<path>` instead of the current
-s <format>::
--suffix <format>::
Specify an alternate suffix for the bugreport name, to create a file
named 'git-bugreport-<formatted suffix>'. This should take the form of a
strftime(3) format string; the current local time will be used.
Create a zip archive of supplemental information about the user's
machine, Git client, and repository state. The archive is written to the
same output directory as the bug report and is named
'git-diagnostics-<formatted suffix>'.
Without `mode` specified, the diagnostic archive will contain the default set of
statistics reported by `git diagnose`. An optional `mode` value may be specified
to change which information is included in the archive. See
linkgit:git-diagnose[1] for the list of valid values for `mode` and details
about their usage.
