      Writing documentation

      Django takes good documentation very seriously, any improvements would be great!

      Test your sites against pre-release versions

      For example, we've recently released Django 1.4 beta. For the final version to be awesome, we need people to download the beta (https://www.djangoproject.com/download/), try it out, and report bugs (https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/internals/contributing/bugs-and-features/).

      • 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?

      Any of the "easy" tickets

      We keep a list of tickets marked as "easy" (for some definition of the term, at least): https://code.djangoproject.com/query?status=!closed&easy=1&stage=Accepted. Those are usually fairly small, bite-sized tasks that could be tackled by a newcomer.

      • 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 Django 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.
