 Bug Reporting
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
-If you find a bug in Busybox, you can send a bug report to our bug tracking
-system (homepage: http://bugs.lineo.com). Instructions on how to send a bug
-report to the tracking system can be found at:
+If you find bugs, please submit a detailed bug report to the busybox mailing
+list at busybox at busybox.net.  A well-written bug report should include a
+transcript of a shell session that demonstrates the bad behavior and enables
+anyone else to duplicate the bug on their own machine. The following is such 
+an example:

-Validating and confirming bugs is nearly as important as reporting them in the
-first place. It is valuable to know if a bug can be duplicated on a different
-machine, on a different filesystem, on a different architecture, with a
-different C library, and so forth.

-	http://bugs.lineo.com/db/pa/lbusybox.html
+Note the careful description and use of examples showing not only what BusyBox
+does, but also a counter example showing what an equivalent GNU app does.  Bug
+reports lacking such detail may never be fixed...  Thanks for understanding.
 
-If you have comments to add to a bug (can / can't duplicate, think a bug
-should be closed / reopened), please send it to [bugnumber]@bugs.lineo.com.
