Before you submit a report
Before you submit a bug report, please take a moment to:
Check whether your issue has already been reported.
Determine which venue is most appropriate for it.
Read the documentation to see whether what you’ve found is really a bug.
Search through the existing Qubes issues by typing your key words in the Filters box. Make sure to check both currently open issues, as well as issues that are already closed. If you find an issue that seems to be similar to yours, read through it. If this issue is the same as yours, you can comment with additional information to help the maintainer debug it. Adding a comment will subscribe you to email notifications, which can be helpful in getting important updates regarding the issue. If you don’t have anything to add but still want to receive email updates, you can click the “watch” button at the bottom of the comments.
Where to submit your report

Those questions are more likely to be answered in qubes-users, which receives much more traffic. Instead, GitHub issues are meant to track more general bugs and enhancements that affect a broad range of Qubes users.
