       git-bugreport - Collect information for user to file a bug report

       git bugreport [(-o | --output-directory)	<path>]	[(-s | --suffix) <format>]

       Captures	information about the user's machine, Git client, and
       repository state, as well as a form requesting information about	the
       behavior	the user observed, into	a single text file which the user can
       then share, for example to the Git mailing list,	in order to report an
       observed	bug.

       The following information is requested from the user:

       o   Reproduction	steps

       o   Expected behavior

       o   Actual behavior

       The following information is captured automatically:

       o   git version --build-options

       o   uname sysname, release, version, and	machine	strings

       o   Compiler-specific info string

       o   A list of enabled hooks

       o   $SHELL

       This tool is invoked via	the typical Git	setup process, which means
       that in some cases, it might not	be able	to launch - for	example, if a
       relevant	config file is unreadable. In this kind	of scenario, it	may be
       helpful to manually gather the kind of information listed above when
       manually	asking for help.

       -o <path>, --output-directory <path>
	   Place the resulting bug report file in <path> instead of the	root
	   of the Git repository.

       -s <format>, --suffix <format>
	   Specify an alternate	suffix for the bugreport name, to create a
	   file	named git-bugreport-_formatted suffix_.	This should take the
	   form	of a strftime(3) format	string;	the current local time will be

       Part of the git(1) suite
