How to report bugs
==================
Bugs should be reported to the GNOME bug tracking system.
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org, product glib.) You will need
to create an account for yourself.
In the bug report please include:
* Information about your system. For instance:
- What operating system and version
- For Linux, what version of the C library
And anything else you think is relevant.
* How to reproduce the bug.
If you can reproduce it with one of the test programs that are built
in the tests/ subdirectory, that will be most convenient. Otherwise,
please include a short test program that exhibits the behavior.
As a last resort, you can also provide a pointer to a larger piece
of software that can be downloaded.
* If the bug was a crash, the exact text that was printed out
when the crash occured.
* Further information such as stack traces may be useful, but
is not necessary.
Patches
=======
Patches should also be submitted to bugzilla.gnome.org. If the
patch fixes an existing bug, add the patch as an attachment
to that bug report.
Otherwise, enter a new bug report that describes the patch,
and attach the patch to that bug report.
Patches should be in unified diff form. (The -up option to GNU diff.)
Notes about GLib 2.32

* It is no longer necessary to use g_thread_init() or to link against
libgthread. libglib is now always thread-enabled. Custom thread

system implementations are no longer supported (including errorcheck
mutexes).
