Reporting bugs

The Reporting Bugs page on the Knowledge Base has details on how to report a bug.

The developers are generally happy to help with verifying bugs. If you need help, ask on Zulip, IRC or on the maria-developers mailing list.

If the bug is repeatable, it is very helpful if you create a test case for the bug for use with mysql-test-run. See Debugging MariaDB with mysql-test-run for more information.

For End of Life releases, MariaDB Foundation will not provide security updates, however outside contributors are welcome to submit security and bug fixes and backports to no-longer maintained versions.
