This Quick Reference Guide is an overview for people who want to help out with improving the Joomla software.  All software contains small errors ("bugs") and Joomla is no exception.  

To solve these errors small improvements ("patches") are created and released. Such patches need to be tested before those improvements can be added to the Joomla source code. You don't need any programming skills to test: Anyone with some Joomla experience can help with testing bugs and patches!

This Quick Reference Guide describes the Joomla Issue Tracker, How to set up a test environment, How to test a patch, How to report a bug and how to submit a patch.
