It is recommended that you log your bug reports in [https://gitlab.com/mobian1/issues the project's issue tracker]. As a general rule, issues with third-party apps (even the default ones) should be reported upstream. A Mobian issue would be related to getting the hardware to work on the PinePhone, but if unsure where the issue should be reported just open a ticket or ask. Feel free to pick an open issue to work on, or send a merge request on [https://gitlab.com/mobian1 Gitlab].
