We are announcing a Joomla! Pizza, Bugs and Fun event scheduled for Saturday, September 15, 2012. The event is global for virtual participants with local venues wherever they are organized. Joomla 3 is scheduled to be released on September 27th, so hopefully this Bug Squish will play a big part in squashing the remaining bugs.
This is also a birthday celebration for Joomla! so it's actually a Pizza Bugs Birthday Cake and Fun event. Be sure to add birthday cake, ice cream or stroopwafels to your party!
See the section General Instructions below for instructions.
This wiki will be used as the central resource for coordinating efforts and accumulating results from this event.
The twitter hash tag is #jpbf12.
We have set up a Skype chat for all attendees of the PBF. Skype is invitation only and you are all invited. This is the same chat we used for the PBF in March. To get an invitation, email your Skype name to Andy Tarr (email@example.com). To make sure you can get in, get your invitation and log in before the day of the PBF. This Skype chat will be in English, but other languages can set up their own chat groups as well.
These instructions may change as we get closer to the event.
You are free to work on any aspect of the documentation that takes your fancy, but here are some suggestions for stuff that really needs some love and attention:
We are offering pizza (or any comparable locally popular main course) and soda for pre-registered groups. Be sure to also get some birthday cake to celebrate Joomla's birthday. We are not setting a specific maximum, but please don’t go crazy with it. Get enough so there’s plenty for everyone, but not a week’s worth of pizza and soda leftovers for everyone. Contact Andrea Tarr (firstname.lastname@example.org) before the event to register and get details.
If you want to get people together and have a venue to share, please add it below. Share as much as possible details like exact location, url for more information about the venue, ways to register, date and time the venue is available etc.
If you set up a location please send contact information to Andy Tarr (email@example.com). Feel free to contact her with any questions.

Q: Where is the code for Joomla?
A: The current Joomla code can be found either on Joomlacode or GitHub.
Q: Which one is 3.0?
A: On GitHub, it is the master branch. For SVN, it is the main trunk.
Q: Any known issues with JForge and Chrome on Windows?
A: It have been seen that browsing the JForge tracker, Chrome may ask for a missing plugin (windows media player). No workaround for this is yet known.
Q: How do I apply a Git pull request as an SVN Patch?
A: Git & SVN are two different ways of doing version control for software. Joomla is in a transition stage of moving from SVN to Git. Many of the patches will be SVN patches which you'll find in the files tab at the bottom of the tracker. Some trackers will have Git "pull requests" instead.
These git pull requests can still usually be applied like SVN patches if you only have SVN. Take the URL of the pull request, add ".patch" to the end of it and use that as a URL to the patch.
Many of this pull requests will also have extra folders on the internal file names like a/ and b/.
In Eclipse, to remove those automatically, change Ignore Leading Path Name Segments to 1.
