How can I assign a bug to myself

Hi,

I would like to work on some sanitizer bugs I submitted a while ago, such as:

UBSan: please provide __ubsan_set_error_report_callback() to capture error messages#1298 https://github.com/google/sanitizers/issues/1298

But there doesn't seem to assign bugs when I'm logged into my github account. I assume I need some privileges, but I don't know how to request them.

Thanks in advance,
Diane Meirowitz

Hi Diane,

Unfortunately we’d be unable to give permissions on github.com/google/. In saying that, commits are always welcome on LLVM - we don’t normally track (or require) feature work on GitHub issues, or even really update GitHub issues unless we were first notified of the bug there. It’s more of a dumping ground for “stuff related to sanitizers that we (a team at Google) want to share externally”.

Thanks,
Mitch.

Mitch,

Thanks for your reply. I asked this question because of the following statement in https://llvm.org/docs/Contributing.html:

“If you are interested in contributing code to LLVM, bugs labeled with the beginner keyword in the bug tracker are a good way to get familiar with the code base. If you are interested in fixing a bug, please create an account for the bug tracker and assign it to yourself, to let people know you are working on it.

So that should probably be updated.

That page has a link to the bug tracker for the LLVM project, which is
https://bugs.llvm.org/ (not GitHub), but it can be pretty easy to
miss.

HTH!

Yes that explains it. Thank you.
