Hello Frank,

thanks a lot for your interest in contributing source code. First of all you will have to sign Oracle Contributor Agreement [1]. Once your OCA is approved, you can get briefly familiar with NetBeans APIs [2] and then query Bugzilla to find your first issue. The bug should be something trivial like a typo in some bundle [3] or the like to just allow you to create a patch which you could attach to the bug for review and integration. After you learn how the process works you can continue with a more difficult issue. For more details please read FAQs [4].

I hope this helps,

Hello NetFIX team,

     as you might know NetBeans IDE 7.3 will soon enter stabilization mode 
and so we would like to ask you for help.

     As usually, we start with big disproportion [1] in number of new vs.
resolved bugs :| so any help with bug fixing would be much appreciated.
The important question now is how many of you have some time from next week 
till the mid of December for some patching?

     BTW, there is a dashboard [2] giving a statistical overview of resolved 
bugs including performance of individual development teams. If you help fix a 
bug, your name will be shown in the left table and Community team scores one 
more point! :)

     If you can allocate some cycles in the next ~3 months, let us know as 
soon as possible.

Thanks for your support!

Best regards,
Jiří Kovalský
NetBeans Community Manager
