If Unison is not working the way you expect, here are some steps to follow.
Feel free to post feature requests, suggestions,
etc. to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- First, take a look at the Unison documentation, especially the FAQ
section. Lots of questions are answered there.
- Next, try running Unison with the "-debug all" command line
option. This will cause Unison to generate a detailed trace of what
it's doing, which may help pinpoint where the problem is occurring.
- If this doesn't clarify matters, try sending an email describing your
problem to the users list at email@example.com.
(Make sure you subscribe first, so that you'll see people's responses
in case they reply only to the list!) Please include the version of
Unison you are using (unison -version), the kind of machine(s) you are
running it on, a record of what gets printed when the "-debug all"
option is included, and as much information as you can about what went
- If you think you've discovered an actual bug in Unison, you
can report it using the Github issue tracker.
