When reporting a bug, it's important to ensure that you're following the correct protocol for the upstream project. Use a search engine to research and verify the proper location for reporting the bug. Each project may have unique guidelines for testing and reporting bugs, so be sure to read and understand them before submitting a report. Providing as much detailed information as possible can improve the chances of your bug being addressed.
To start, try to reproduce the bug and ensure that it's not an isolated issue on your local machine. If you can reproduce it, consider downloading an ISO image and testing it on a virtual machine.
If the bug is related to packaging, search for the package in the Arch or Manjaro repositories and determine where to report the bug. If it's an Arch package, report it at bugs.archlinux.org. If it's a Manjaro package, report it at gitlab.manjaro.org under the correct package or software name.

While the forum is not an official issue tracker, it can be a helpful resource for those who are new to reporting bugs. If you're unsure where to report a bug, consider posting on the forum to receive guidance. However, if you have experience in reporting bugs, it's recommended to head directly to the project's GitLab and open an issue there.
