I believe I've found a regression in click-and-drag on my laptop's trackpad, and it's proving to be very annoying. I'd like to file a bug, but I have no idea what package I should file against.

I've already taken a look at How do I report a bug?, but didn't find what I was looking for there. The top-rated answer suggests to determine what package I need to file against, but there's no mention of trackpads there, either.

I have decided to file the bug against xorg-xserver-input-synaptics as shown here. I guess I'll know based on feedback from the devs whether this is the right package.

UPDATE: This bug was almost immediately marked a duplicate of Bug 934770, which currently requires feedback to decide whether to revert the relevant default setting or not. At least I now know for sure that I filed against the correct package.

I think it would be one of the Xorg packages. Search Launchpad for Xorg bugs and you will probably find a report very similar that you can add your info to. Or at least see what to file your bug against.
