I've certainly found the Debian and GNOME BTSes invaluable. A ton of times I've run into issues with stuff on Debian, immediately checked the BTS and found that it relates to a bug that someone else has already reported. Sometimes, workarounds are present in the discussion about that bug (and thus available in a place most likely to be encountered by others experiencing the same problem), which is handy for when the fix is not yet available in the official package. The GNOME bugzilla appears to also be used to keep track of who's working on fixing something; and if they had to put the problem down because of other commitments or whatever, there's a record of what they learned and how far they got. OTOH, it takes a fair amount of effort to maintain such a BTS. FG is a much smaller project, and thus would require less effort, to be sure; but for the same reason, it'd have (it has) a lot fewer bugs to keep track of, and so there's less of a compelling need. And while I think it'd be handy to have, I have no idea whatsoever whether the overhead is larger than the benefit. And of course, it'd only be useful if people committed to using it. > If you ever find an issue with JSBSim > in FlightGear, please do report it.

But given my current state of ignorance, I can imagine running into problems for which I would have no idea whether they're related to the guts of fgfs or whether they're related to the FDM used. Hopefully that will change with time. -c -- Chris Metzler [EMAIL PROTECTED] (remove "snip-me." to email) "As a child I understood how to give; I have forgotten this grace since I have become civilized." - Chief Luther Standing Bear
