too hard to report bugs
My name is Danack, and I maintain the PHP Imagick library http://pecl.php.net/package/imagick
It seems that it is really hard for people using Imagick on Alpine to report Alpine related issues. I've had multiple users report issues at https://github.com/Imagick/imagick/ even though as part of the bug report they say something along the lines of:
"Apologies for posting this here, I didn't know where better to post it."
I think they have a point. Even if you know the alpine Imagick project page is here: https://pkgs.alpinelinux.org/package/edge/community/x86/php7-pecl-imagick
Figuring out how to open a bug for the package is not trivial.
There is no 'report a bug' button on that page and clicking on 'bugs' takes me to https://gitlab.alpinelinux.org/ - which 'somewhat surprisingly' does not have any way of reporting bugs on it.
I really think the page at https://pkgs.alpinelinux.org/package/edge/community/x86/php7-pecl-imagick should have a "Report a bug" button that takes the user directly to the correct page to open a bug for that project. Or just a link to view bugs for that project, that has the 'new issue' button on that page.
Oh wow - does this bug reporting system not allow me to select packages......that's not great.
cheers Dan Ack
ps - I don't like the word bug. The word 'issue' is far more neutral. e.g. a missing feature is an issue, not a bug.
