Bugs and feature enhancements to dogpile.core should be reported on the Bitbucket issue tracker. If you’re not sure that a particular issue is specific to either dogpile.cache or dogpile.core, posting to the dogpile.cache issue tracker is likely the better place to post first, but it’s not critical either way.
