Sad to say, but the developers seldom read the forums. It's a better idea to post your concerns where the devs will actually read it, right?

As I explained in your other post, many of the bugs you see are probably not specifically Mint bugs, they probably come from "upstream." So figure out which bugs in which programs you want to tackle, and find the maintainers of that project. If you can't find them, ask here. If you find bugs in a Mint project like Cinnamon or MATE, I believe both of those are hosted at github.com, which is another of Linus Torvald's projects and hosts many open source projects. If you find bugs and you're not sure where the actual bug lies, ask here, somebody will either know or can probably figure it out.

just a small note on this (sorry):

Git ≠ Github ≠ Gitlab

Git is a version control system and one of Linux Torvald's creation.

Github (as well as Gitlab and Bitbucket and so on) are web services offering Git repositories online. Github itself is now part of the Microsoft family and has nothing to do with Linus Torvald.

Your argument is irrelephant - it's lacking elephants.

Well, this thread is 2 years old, but since it's been bumped, the answer is, as linked on the main page where you download: https://linuxmint-troubleshooting-guide.readthedocs.io/
