How do I report a bug?

I'm interested in reporting a bug against the unity-webapps-preview package from ppa:webapps/preview. However, I can't seem to find the right way to go about it.

Things I've tried (and what went wrong):

  1. Reporting using ubuntu-bug. ("The problem cannot be reported: This is not an official Ubuntu package. Please remove any third party package and try again.")
  2. Reporting using Launchpad website. (I can't find a link. This could be oversight on my part. Forgive me if it is.)
  3. Using Google to figure out how to report bugs against PPAs. (The only suggestion I could find using Google seems to be to e-mail the developer directly, which I'm willing to do only if there's no better way.)

I would appreciate any advice or insight the Community can give me on how to report a bug of this nature. Thanks!

@AnwarShah Nope. This is dealing with reporting bug against a package under testing. –  Mahesh Aug 5 '12 at 17:05

You are using a package that is not provided in Ubuntu repositories, and hence, ubuntu-bug will very likely fail.

However, this is a project that is officially backed by Ubuntu, and is in its testing phase. Usually, QA Tracker contains a section on such projects.

Head over to QA Tracker and select Webapps Precise testing or Webapps Quantal Testing as appropriate. You are highly encouraged to record your feedback by subvmitting a result to as many test cases as possible. Installation, Uninstallation, and Bug reporting instructions are all detailed there.

Thanks for the feedback and pointing me to QA Tracker. I was unaware that this existed. :) Just to clarify, based on the instructions here: link I should just report any problems in the unity-firefox-extensions package if I'm using Firefox, correct? Even if I'm not sure that the Firefox extension itself is to blame? –  Donald J. Hayward Aug 5 '12 at 20:34
    
Yes. If you encounter a bug when using webapps from firefox, blame it on unity-firefox-extensions. It would be a great help if you also tried to check if it exists in chrome, and file another bug if it exists. And do report all bugs in QA tracker. –  Mahesh Aug 6 '12 at 6:23
