Submitting bug reports

What is the appropriate way to submit a bug report against the ruby
interpreter?

The way this has been done in the past is to send an email to
ruby-bugs@ruby-lang.org, as indicated in the comp.lang.ruby FAQ
(http://www.ruby-doc.org/docs/ruby-doc-bundle/CLR-FAQ/clrFAQ.html):

(c) If reporting a bug, please copy (cc:) your post to:

         mailto:ruby-bugs@ruby-lang.org

     This will enter your report into the Ruby bug database.
     You can browse the database at:

         http://www.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/ruby-bugs

While the list is still present (emails sent to it don't bounce), the
above webpage no longer exists.

I tried to check the FAQ (http://www.rubygarden.org/iowa/faqtotum) but
the page is blank.

I also tried to see if it was listed under the hotlinks page
(http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/hotlinks.html) but that page is 404.

Is this related to the crack from back in May?

Also, bookmarked page:
http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/index.html (fails 404)

.... but this is OK:
http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/

As to ruby bug reports, I like seeing the English reports here
(or on ruby-core) so that folks are able to verify them, but
it's a bit too public for casual reporting.

Wheras some groups get really offended by:
  Subject: [BUG] ...

- it doesn't seem to cause a bad reaction here, although
  Subject: [bug?] ... (or similar) might be safer
unless the poster is fairly sure :slight_smile:

ruby-bugs is a great system to have unless (I guess) you're one
of the souls on the receiving end who has to keep up with
administering them (often in a language other than their first?).

How about an anonymous web-form (with some abuse protection)
on ruby-lang that formats, then SMTPs reports to ruby-talk?

Too spammy? (I'm not volunteering, btw :wink:
