While most Phoronix readers should be well aware of the bug reporting procedures for Mesa drivers, Ian Romanick of Intel has written a lengthy blog post about the process of writing a "good" bug report for the open-source graphics drivers.

Among the good bug report recommendations are submitting the bug report against the right product/component, correctly describing the software/hardware in the system, thoroughly describing the problem encountered, adding annotations to the bug summary, bisecting the regression and responding to the bug report.
