Report bugs and request new features in SPARTA

You can do both of these on the SPARTA GitHub page; see details below.

You can also do this via the SPARTA mail list, by simply sending an email to "sparta-users at". This would be more appropriate if you are not sure something is a bug, or you just want to know if some feature is already available in SPARTA or possible for you or someone else to implement. If it indeed seems to be a bug, you may get asked to submit the full info through the GitHub site.

Report a bug via GitHub:

If you fix a bug, or implement a new feature, you can submit it via the GitHub site, as a pull request.

Note that you can add labels to issues. The bug reports are simply issues flagged with a "bug" label.

Regarding bugs, the following quote seems apropos:

As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know. -- Donald Rumsfeld
