Pbf.png

A Joomla! Pizza, Bugs and Fun event is scheduled for Friday, October 17, 2014. The event is global for virtual participants (both businesses and individuals), with local venues wherever they are organized. The key goal is to fix as many Joomla 3 and Joomla 2.5 bugs as possible.

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.

Follow @JoomlaBugSquad on Twitter for updates during PBF and some social fun. The Twitter' hash tag is #JoomlaPBF.

Goals

  • Bugs : We will be working through the CMS Issue Tracker where there are bug reports needing patches and/or testing.
  • Documentation : If you want to help out writing documentation, you're also more than welcome. See the Documentation Details below for suggestions.

Organization, logistics and communications

Communication

See the Chat section.

Training Sessions

There was an optional webinar training session on 16 October, 2014 at 15:15 UTC. Please use the chat and documentation below for additional resources.

Also, on 16 & 17 October, 2014, the chat will be open for a Q&A and for help getting started.

Recognition

We've dubbed the event as a Business PBF, since it's the second PBF on a weekday (Friday) and we'd like to get more business involved. We've created badges that you can use on your sites to spread awareness of the event and get recognition for your participation: http://developer.joomla.org/pbf

Furthermore, we'd like to give you more recognition and highlight your pledge of participation by placing your logo and a link to your site on the landing page: http://developer.joomla.org/pbf

There are four participations levels: Epic, Platinum, Gold, and Silver. Platinum is for 10 hours or more pledged to the event. Gold is four hours or more pledged. Silver is pledged to participate in the event. And Epic for 100+ hours pledged!

So, for example, if Company ABC had five of their developers for two hours, then they could use the Platinum badge and have their logo (and link) in the platinum area on the landing page.

The hours you choose to pledge towards the event is totally up to you as an individual or business. As a bonus, if you write a blog post about the event, you can count it as 30 minutes towards your pledge. So if you pledged 5 hours and write a blog post, you'd be helping at the event for 4.5 hours.

Finally, on the day of the event, come and go as you'd like and fulfill your pledged hours. You can help with testing bug fixes, reporting bugs, coding bug fixes, etc. Most of all, enjoy every minute! Have fun, enjoy the fellowship, learn, and make Joomla better for you, your business, your clients, and your friends.

General Instructions

These instructions may change as we get closer to the event.

Task List

We have a list of suggested items available to work on. They range from very easy to intermediate difficulty. However, you're not just limited to this list and using the below process you can test/code for any items:

If you want to test bug fixes (i.e. patches)

  • 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.
  • Use the CMS Issue Tracker as usual, which means you can use the Joomla Patch Tester.
  • Most of the issues should have test instructions with them.
  • Submit test result
    Once you have tested then please submit a result using the Submit test result button. What is good to do as well is to leave a comment with more details. For example the comment could look like this: I have looked at this issue. I was able to confirm the issue AND after applying the patch I can confirm the issue is resolved
  • Note: You don't have to delete the installation folder when you are using the development version of Joomla. This allows you to reinstall just by deleting the configuration.php file.
  • Note: See the FAQ on how to apply a Git pull request.
Helpful Documentation

If you want to code bug fixes

  • Use the CMS Issue Tracker as usual, looking for the issues with a status of Confirmed.
  • Send in a pull request (PR). Add testing instructions if they don't already exist.
    Helpful documentation

If you want to work on Documentation

Documentation all together tranparent bkgd.png
  • To edit this Documentation Wiki, you will need a user account on the wiki. If you don't already have one, you may register on Special:UserLogin. You only need a valid email address to register. After confirming your email address you will have immediate permission to edit any page except for a few that are protected because they are high profile spam targets.
  • Important! - You should review the Wiki policy and our use of Abuse filters for new users.
  • Get your user account a few days before and make sure that you are able to sign in since the automatic authorization system can lock some people out.
  • 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 chat to help you.
