We eagerly announce the second Joomla! Pizza Bug and Fun event scheduled for the weekends of June 21 and 22 and June 28 and 29. It's hard to believe that six months have passed since the first Joomla! Pizza Bug and Fun event. The first PBF helped finalize Joomla! 1.5 and, if all goes as planned, this second event will help prepare Joomla! 1.5.4 for release early in July.

This wiki will be used as the central resource for coordinating efforts and accumulating results from this event.

Goals

  • Bugs : For our first PBF event, we targeted priority 1 and 2 bugs and tested the entire application. Since it's release, Joomla! 1.5 has been very stable and there are no serious bugs to fix. But, there are a number of medium priority items that require patches and testing. If we are able to empty the tracker during the weekend, it would be an important accomplishment for the community.
  • Documentation : since the last Doc Camp a lot of documentation has been written, but we need more of it. If you want to help out writing documentation, you're also more than welcome.
  • Unit testing : we have started writing unit tests for Joomla! This is documented in the wiki, see Unit Testing for details. This is a very important part to improve the overall quality of Joomla! and increase development speed. If you have experience in this area, we challenge you to come help us.
