How to help with harvesting - Simple things we can all do
Last updated at 10:27 pm UTC on 19 March 2007
If you drop by on the squeak irc channel (irc.freenode.net:6667/#squeak) you will very probably find someone who can help you with questions you have about the Harvesting process. [Particularly during the "Squeak Chats" posted in the mailing list.]

In addition to Reporting Bugs and Fixes, there are things all of us can do to contribute to the long-term health of Squeak. If you don't already have one, create a new Mantis account then log in and select the "View Issues" link at the top of the page. The default filter will show you all open bugs for all projects. If you're just starting, focus on those in category "Squeak" or "Squeak Packages". Pick a bug report or fix that has had little or no activity and, depending on which it is...

Reporting on an existing Fix

Here are some things to consider. In each case you can note your findings on Mantis. This will help Squeak's maintainers process these fixes.

Updating a Bug Report

Commenting on enhancements

Submitting class/method comment fixes and additions

Keeping your own reports up to date

If you've had second thoughts about a bug or fix you've reported, please update the Mantis entry accordingly.
