This section explains how to help by finding issues to work on, creating and submitting patches.

Finding issues to work on

Most issues are solved by developers that have a need to have them solved, because they are affected by the issue or they are the maintainer and help to keep their module up to date.
Some developers also pick an issue of their liking and start developing and submitting a patch. The following links are collections of such issues to work on:
