Now I'll start explaining the tabs. First, the issues tab. Here I was quite surprised to see that just having my project out there encouraged people to play with it!

The columns are mainly drop downs that let you sort the defects. The drop down menu above the columns lets you search Open Issues, My Issues, My Starred Issues, New Issues, and Issues to Verify. Opening this particular issue by clicking on the number one led me to this page:

Clicking on "Add comment below" takes you to a text box in which you can add a comment. Clicking on "Show change history" shows you when the various comments were added, and whether any issue attributes were added when the comment was added.

So how did deyron add this issue? Very simply, he clicked on "New Issue." This takes you to a page with text boxes. The first text box is for a one-line summary. The one below it actually has some helpful text already entered in it (the guidelines he mentions in his comment):

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

Please use labels and text to provide additional information."

You can even add an attachment to the issue.
