Wander if we have logs for various events if there should be some
addon to handle submition of logs to the appropriate place
depending on what the issue is about.
I wander if you could do this and things like bug reports for not
just nvda but other things from an app that interfaces with
Its just a thought.
If I have a problem, and its got a log I will obviously try to
submit the log to the appropriate person or github but what if I
don't know where to put it.
I will then submit the log via a dropbox link here because I have
Wander if there can or is some sort of program to do this
allready to a central location that could interface with github
since thats where everything is.
I have no doubt one actually exists but I have never actively
searched for this.

Even though the subject says, "Please," this is really
not a request, but a command. In an Admin Notice from earlier
this year (List
Updates, Please Read), Nimer Jaber, NVDA Group Owner,
- Speaking of logs, we should avoid sending long logs to this
- Logs may contain personal information to your system, your
set-up, or possibly keystrokes you press, etc.
- It is not expected that users on this list will know how
to read logs, or that they will dissect those logs for you
to determine the issue. Please reach out to NVAccess
directly. No doubt there is already a process in place for
this, however we shouldn't ask users to post logs to this
I'm now going beyond that, and saying, "Don't, really don't, ever
post full logs or log segments to this group."
It's fine to ask for help and indicate that you have a log or log
segment available for review to anyone who requests it. And our
regulars who are capable of dissecting logs now routinely ask that
those be delivered to them privately via e-mail (typically), or
some other method out of the public view.
Just don't post 'em here!

If you think that
you can think about a thing, inextricably attached to
something else, without thinking of the thing it is
attached to, then you have a legal mind.
