Revision as of 14:41, 9 December 2011 by Sueter (Talk | contribs)


We are announcing a Joomla! Pizza Bug 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!

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


  • Bugs : We will be working through the CMS Issue Tracker where there are trackers 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 trackers of 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


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 ( before the event to register and get details.


We have set up a Skype chat for all attendees of the PBF. Skype is invitation only. To get an invitation, email your Skype name to Andy Tarr ( 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

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.
  • 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 here.

Helpful Documentation:

If you want to test but don’t have SVN
