-How to contribute code and becoming ​developer.+ 
 +===== Bug Reporting and Testing ===== 
 +One of the most useful tasks that we rely on the community for is testing and reporting of bugs, you can report bugs on the [[https://​bugzilla.xfce.org/​|Xfce Bugzilla site]], the [[https://​mail.xfce.org/​mailman/​listinfo/​xfce-bugs|Xfce-bugs mailing list]], or you can ask on our IRC channel [[irc://​irc.freenode.net/#​xfce|#​xfce on Freenode]] for help. Please do not use the forums to report bugs. Before submitting a bug, please try your best to check if it has already been reported. When writing your bug report, try to be as descriptive as possible, but avoid verbosity; Mozilla has a nice guide on [[https://​developer.mozilla.org/​en-US/​docs/​Mozilla/​QA/​Bug_writing_guidelines|how to write a bug report]]. For more information,​ see [[.:bugs/start|Bug Reporting and Fixing]].
