## Closing policy for issues and pull requests
Pull requests and issues not in line with the guidelines listed in this document will be closed with just a link to this paragraph.

To get support for your problems please use other channels as detailed in [the getting help section of the readme](https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq#getting-help). Professional [support subscriptions](http://www.gitlab.com/subscription/) and [consulting services](http://www.gitlab.com/consultancy/) are available from [GitLab.com](http://www.gitlab.com/).

## Issue tracker
The [issue tracker](https://github.com/gitlabhq/gitlabhq/issues) is only for obvious bugs or misbehavior in the master branch of GitLab. When submitting an issue please conform to the issue submission guidelines listed below.
Please send a pull request with a tested solution or a pull request with a failing test instead of opening an issue if you can. If you're unsure where to post, post to the [Support Forum](https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/gitlabhq) first. There are a lot of helpful GitLab users there who may be able to help you quickly. If your particular issue turns out to be a bug, it will find its way from there.

* Add the last commit sha1 of the GitLab version you used to replicate the issue
* Add logs or screen shots when possible
