      Take a look at http://wiki.growstuff.org and get an idea of what we do.

      If you're a coder or would like to be: http://wiki.growstuff.org/index.php/Development_process_overview describes our development process. Read through that, join our mailing list and/or IRC channel, and put your hand up to work on our next iteration!

      If you're a gardener: we want you to help us understand what you want from Growstuff. If you like, you can take a turn at being our official "customer" and reviewing/approving our work, or just join the mailing list/IRC and talk to us about your wants/needs.

      Gardening knowledge

      If you grow food, we'd love to talk to you about how you do it, and how you might use Growstuff. Tell us about what tools/resources you use to track your garden at present, what works and what doesn't, what you wish existed.

      Acceptance testing

      Each iteration we have a handful of people acting as "customers" to review, test, and (hopefully) approve the work we've done. Anyone who is interested in using the site can sign up as a customer, and we're particularly interested in people with a wide range of devices, including mobile (phones, tablets), and people with accessibility needs such as those who use screenreaders.

      • 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 Growstuff that you've been putting off, neglecting, or just plain avoiding?

      • 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.
