Thanks to everyone who participated! It was a great success. Stats will be forthcoming.

We are announcing a Joomla! Pizza, Bugs and Fun 2011 event scheduled for Saturday, December 10, 2011. The event is global for virtual participants with local venues where ever they are organized. The official start time is 9am in each time zone. Help us prepare Joomla! 2.5 for release early in January 2012!

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 #jpbf11 and there is a Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/events/208015399276419/

For Google+ posts you can also use #JPBF11 in your posts. https://plus.google.com/u/0/s/%23JPBF11

Goals

  • Bugs : We will be working through the CMS Issue Tracker where there are bug reports needing patches and/or testing.
  • Features : There are features that need some coding and/or testing before they will be ready for 2.5. Finder and the multi-database are two such features. The CMS Feature Tracker has feature requests that need testing and coding that needs to be done.
  • Documentation : We still have documentation that needs to be done. If you want to help out writing documentation, you're also more than welcome.

Organization, logistics and communications

Communication

We have set up a Skype chat for all attendees of the PBF. Skype is invitation only and you are all invited. To get an invitation, email your Skype name to Andy Tarr (andrea.tarr@joomla.org). To make sure you can get in, get your invitation and log in before the day of the PBF. For languages other than English, some of the organizations listed below have set up chats in their language.

General Instructions

If you want to code bug fixes

  • Look for issues with a status of Confirmed
  • Before you start coding, find the issue in the CMS Issues Google doc or CMS Features Google doc and put your name on the issue so people know someone is working on it. You can sign things out to a group if a group is working on any issue. Remember that everyone is seeing the same document, so please don't hide rows.
  • Use the CMS Issue Tracker and CMS Feature Tracker as usual, which means you download the patch from the tracker and apply it to a current SVN copy of Joomla.
  • When you have a patch, add it to the tracker and change the status to Pending if you are able to.
  • Go back into the Google doc and change the status there to Pending as well and remove your name and add a comment with your name that you added a patch. If the tracker still needs to be changed to pending, you can mention it there.
  • In addition to the two trackers, special coding projects can be found here: special items. These include both challenging projects and easy ones.

Helpful documentation:

If you want to test and you have or can set up SVN and XAMPP/MAMP

  • Look for issues with a status of Pending. We want at least 2 testers and more on complex issues, so you can test what others have tested already.
  • Before you start testing, find the issue in the CMS Issues Google doc or CMS Features Google doc and put your name on the issue so people know someone is testing it. You can sign things out to a group if a group is working on any issue. Remember that everyone is seeing the same document, so please don't hide rows.
  • Use the CMS Issue Tracker and CMS Feature Tracker as usual, which means you download the patch from the tracker and apply it to a current SVN copy of Joomla.
  • Most of the issues should have test instructions with them.
  • Once you have tested, add comments to the tracker on your results. Start your comment with @test so you will get counted in the stats as a tester.
  • Go back into the Google doc and remove your name and add a comment with your name that you tested. If you weren’t able to put a comment in the tracker, add your results there.
  • In addition to the two trackers, special testing projects can be found here: special items. Additional testing instructions for some are here: Testing Build and Featured Testing Google doc.

Helpful Documentation:

If you want to test but don’t have SVN

  • Download the pre-patched copy (testing build) of Joomla at https://github.com/elinw/joomla-cms/tree/pbf2011. This copy has a number of patches applied to it and can be used to test those trackers. You can install it either locally (if you have XAMPP/MAMP) or online. It may be updated throughout the day.
  • Look for issues with a status of Pending and are in the Pre-patched Joomla. The Google docs have a column that says which are in this download. Most of them are in the Feature tracker. We want at least 2 testers and more on complex issues, so you can test what others have tested already.
  • You’ll find the issues in the CMS Issues Google doc or CMS Features Google doc. Remember that everyone is seeing the same document, so please don't hide rows.
  • Put your name on the issue so people know someone is testing it. You can sign things out to a group if a group is working on an issue.
  • Most of the issues should have test instructions with them or check in the Testing Build and Featured Testing Google doc.
  • Once you have tested, go back into the Google doc and remove your name and add a comment with your name that you tested and your results.
  • In addition to the pre-patched copy above, the prepared Joomla version at https://github.com/elinw/joomla-cms/zipball/vPBF3 contains the images/url feature that could be tested. Testing instructions are under Images and Urls in Testing Build and Featured Testing Google doc.

Special Coding or Testing Projects

If you want to work on Documentation

  • To edit this Documentation Wiki, you will need a user account. If you don't already have one, you may register on Special:UserLogin. While a brand new user account won't give you all the permissions you'd get with a confirmed and "elevated" account, you will be able to edit most pages.
  • If you'd like something to be edited, but you're not sure what to write exactly, use talk pages to add comments to pages.
  • During the PBF, several experienced Wiki editors will be available in the Skype chat to help you.

The bulk of the documentation effort now revolves around this wiki.

  • Please refer to the Docs Wiki Roadmap for a complete overview of tasks.
  • If you are new to MediaWiki then you should consult the User's Guide for information on using the wiki software.
  • List of local wiki templates that can be used in your wiki pages. Templates reduce repetition and are the basis of modular documentation.
  • List of local wiki extensions that have been installed on this wiki. Extensions provide additionally functionality to the wiki such as syntax highlighting and conditional expressions.
  • List of local interwiki links that are available on this wiki. These provide useful shortcuts to creating URLs to other websites including the Joomla! forum, help screens and issue tracker; as well as links to the PHP documentation or Wikipedia.


Help Screens

Pizza

OSM is offering pizza and soda for pre-registered groups. We aren’t 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 (andrea.tarr@joomla.org) before the event to register and get details.

Locations

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 (andrea.tarr@joomla.org). Feel free to contact her with any questions.

Q: Which one is 2.5?

A: It is the main trunk

Q: Why does it still say 1.7.3?

A: The version number hasn't been changed yet.

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.

Contributors

Thanks to everyone who participanted in the Joomla! Pizza, Bugs and Fun this past weekend. Over 60 people worldwide tested, coded/fixed and documented new features and issues in Joomla! 2.5, helping to get it ready for release. Some of the countries represented were the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Israel, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Australia, Malaysia, South Africa, Algeria and India. Over half of the people participating were not in the Joomla Bug Squad so we had a lot of new volunteers. It was great to see so many people come out to help.

These are the statistics from the Joomla CMS Issue Tracker and Joomla CMS Feature Tracker for the period. Thanks must also go out to the people not on these charts including those who did documentation, those who tested but didn't have a login to the trackers and those giving support.
