best way for reporting issues

Sonny To
It seems the mailinglist is used to report issue. I reported an issue
via gitlab https://gitlab.com/kashell/Kawa/issues/20 I think its
better than using email for reporting and tracking issues.

what is the prefered way?

In general creating a  GitLab issue is preferable as I'm less likely to forget
or "lose" the issue.  Plus when/if it is fixed, it is good to refer to the issue
for both the fix and the testcase.

Sometimes using email makes sense. For example when asking for help or whether
something works for others, or if you're unsure if you're doing something right.
