There are lots of ways to contribute to the Bugzilla project:
- Money: You can donate money to help cover our server hosting costs and pay for developer and code reviewer time. See how you can contribute money to Bugzilla, and what the money gets spent on.
- Sponsored Development: If you are a business that uses Bugzilla and has a staff person responsible for maintaining your Bugzilla installation, and that person is willing, please consider allowing them to spend a few hours per week on company time contributing in one of the other categories on this page to Bugzilla. In the past, this was Bugzilla’s primary means of code contribution.
- Code: You can contribute to the Bugzilla codebase if you are familiar with Perl or features Bugzilla has/wants, such as DB, WebServices, etc. See also: Developer’s Guide
- Web Development and User Interface Design: contribute to the Bugzilla UI if you are a designer and/or are good at HTML and/or CSS.
- Documentation: You can contribute to the Bugzilla Documentation if you are familiar with Bugzilla as an administrator or as a user, or good at English.
- Release Process: You can help with the release process if you have some time to give us.
- QA: You can help with the QA process if you are familiar with Bugzilla as an administrator or as a user, and have some time.
- Support: Bugzilla is community-supported. If you’re an old hand at using or administering Bugzilla, hang out in our support venues such as our support mailing list or chat rooms and help other users.
- Translation: You can help to translate templates and/or documentation if you are good at English and other languages.

Much Bugzilla development discussion happens in real time on IRC. We hang out on the #bugzilla channel on libera.chat. Feel free to drop in there anytime to discuss Bugzilla (both development and support discussion happens there).
The easiest way to get on IRC is to use the Kiwi web IRC client, which lets you chat with us through your browser, without installing anything.
