At PBF everyone is needed and gets an important task, which corresponds to their abilities. No programming knowledge is necessary.
All those who want to test a patch can without the need to set up a local installation. You can use an online PBF environment. We work with Joomla!4. Information about the new backend was published in November in Joomla-Magazin.
If you don't want to test a patch, please log in to Glip-Chatroom. Together we will find an alternative task, see also the bottom of page.
Preparations and Installations
1. Means of communication - Enabling teamwork
2. setup Joomla installation
There are two ways to get a Joomla installation at PBF. Option 1: The online PBF environment is available shortly before the PBF event and is also suitable for participants with little system knowledge: Manual online PBF environment. With option 2 you can set up a local installation on your device: instructions: Local Installation
3. find and test errors
If you have configured the local or online installation, you can confirm the bug (status "New"/"New") or test the patch (status "Pending"/"Waiting")
- instruction: Confirm bug (status "New"/"New")
- Instruction: Test Patch (Status "Pending"/"Waiting")
- You can find information about the status in the Issue Tracker
You might find a new bug when testing the patch. With a little luck, "your" bug be fixed at PBF?! Guidance: Report Bug
