Upstream Telepathy components use the freedesktop bugzilla.

Clients & 3rd-party components

Other 3rd-party components and clients may be using other bug tracking systems. Please try to figure out where is the best place to report a bug before doing so, in order to avoid wasting developers’ time.

For the record, here is a list of known applications / components that track their bug reports somewhere else:

Application Bug tracker
Empathy GNOME Gitlab
Polari GNOME Gitlab
KDE-Telepathy KDE Bugzilla


Wocky is the XMPP library used internally by telepathy-gabble and telepathy-salut. It is not a Telepathy component, but it is maintained by the Telepathy project, using a separate product on bugzilla.


Please don’t file bugs against Wocky, unless you know what you are doing. Telepathy-gabble and telepathy-salut bugs can be reported using the first link on this page.

Low hanging fruit

Developers sometimes tag certain bugs as tasks that could be fixed by new contributors, for familiarizing with the code. Such bugs are tagged with the keyword ‘love’ in bugzilla.


Always consult with developers before picking a task, in any case
