General recommendations

Please dont:

  • file issues about localization errors or send localization updates as PRs. Were using CrowdIn to manage our translations and we generally update them before each Beta and Release build. You can learn more about translating AdGuard products in our Knowledge Base.

  • file issues about a particular filtering-rule list misbehaving. These are tracked through the separate form for filtering issues.

  • send or request updates to filtering-rule lists, such as the ones for the Blocked Services feature or the list of approved filtering-rule lists. We update them from the separate repository once before each Beta and Release build.

  • follow the template instructions and provide data for reproducing issues.

  • write the title of your issue or pull request in English. Any language is fine in the body, but it is important to keep the title in English to make it easier for people and bots to look up duplicated issues.
