Please construct and post a simple demo whenever possible for all bug reports. Please provide links to everything.

If you can include a wad demonstrating the problem, please do so. Bug reports that include fully-constructed demos have a much better chance of being investigated in a timely manner than those that don't.

Please make a new topic for every bug. Don't combine multiple bugs into a single topic. Thanks!

"HEAD" is not a valid commit!

Post by Rachael »

If you are self-compiling and reporting bugs, please post the commit hash.

If you are unsure, simply type "git describe --tags" in your source tree. Or type "git rev-parse HEAD". If using a devbuild, simply open your INI and copy the first line.

Use whichever format you like best. Either way though, don't use "HEAD".

The same applies to "latest", "current", "March 13th", and so on. A commit time has nothing to do with a push time, they are unrelated.
Commit hashes exist for this reason, to uniquely identify the state of source code.
You want to point to a particular commit, post a hash, or better insert a GitHub link to it.
