Scientific Linux is based on the sources from Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
As such, any bug present in RHEL is likely to pop up in SL.

If you think you found a bug, you can discuss it on our forum. But neither we (crew of Scientific Linux Forum) or the people from SL can fix the bug permanently. This is not because the SL developers do not want to fix it, but simply because they use all (base) packages from Red Hat. As soon as Red Hat fixes such a bug in RHEL will it find its way to SL.

If you find a real bug, we encourage you to fill a bugreport on the Red Hat Bugzilla website. You need to register an account before you can report.

Good advice before you begin reporting. Do yourself and the people from Red Hat one bif favour: use the search option to check if your bug isn't already reported. And when you report, please include good and plenty information. You need to report bugs against the correct RHEL-version (instead of SL).

Just one note to add in relation to this subject ...

Connie asked in the SL mailing list that "SL" not be mentioned when filing a bug with the upstream bugzilla.
