Video tutorial SCRIPT: filing your first bug report

completed by: richardll

mentors: Andre Klapper, Quim Gil

Students are required to read Wikimedia's general instructions first.

We encourage all our users and contributors to file bug reports whenever they encounter technical problems. Filing bugs/enhancements is difficult for some people to figure out. We can lower the barrier pretty easily by making a short video showing you how.

We started discussing this task at

Bug 54606 - Make tutorial video on how to use Bugzilla

Read all the comments and follow the related links. Familiarize yourself with our new guided form, which will be used in the video instead of the default Bugzilla form.

With all this information, write a script for a video of 5 minutes or less in a subpage under your user page.

Send regular updates to Bug 54606, since the moment you take the task until the point when you have a script ready for video production.

As soon as this task is complete we will open a new one about producing the video using your script. contains useful tips for producing screencasts.
