In the unfortunate event that bugs are discovered, they should be reported to the appropriate bug tracker. If you obtained the software from a 3rd party operating system vendor, it is often wise to use their own bug tracker for reporting problems. In all other cases use the master OpenStack bug tracker, available at:


For information on how to contribute to Nova, please see the contents of the CONTRIBUTING.rst.

Any new code must follow the development guidelines detailed in the HACKING.rst file, and pass all unit tests.
