This is a trial to better structure all the wiki pages around developing on and with joomla. Such as:
Installing a typical web server environment is very easy with following AMP-packages (Apache, MySQL, PHP).
If you want use XDebug for debuggin, you'll need to tune php settings
If you like to contribute to the actual Joomla! code, SVN is what is used there.
Help is appreciated finding related pages and making these pages less redundant.
