  • Q: Other than writing code, how can I contribute?

    • 0
      Documentation, advocacy, beta testing.

      You can help out by simply using CiviCRM and/or telling a friend or organization about CiviCRM.

      CiviCRM needs beta testers to help describe features that are missing, find bugs, and suggest improvements.

      The CiviCRM manual and wiki are open efforts. If you would like to contribute to the manual you can visit http://flossmanuals.org to find a copy.

      Visit http://wiki.civicrm.org to view and edit the collaborative documentation.

      • Tip:

        Discuss documentation, testing, webmastering, and/or publicity.

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        We need people to download version 0.4.5 and make sure the frobulator still frobulates correctly.

  • Q: What's a good bug for a newcomer to tackle?

    • [X]
      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.

  • Q: What is a bug or issue with CiviCRM that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

    • [X]
      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.

      • Note:

        If this issue was formally filed on the web, be sure to include the URL.
