+<p>Bugs happen, and you might know how to fix one!  Because we don't allow everybody
write access to the official code repository
+(everybody has access to read, though!), there is an additional process that has to occur
to get fixes in.  To help us
+squash bugs, do the following :</p>
+<li>Find a bug you want to work on, or submit one into <a href="https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX">JIRA</a>.
 We have some marked as "easy" if you play with the JIRA filters if you want to start with
an easy one.  Make a comment on the ticket that you plan on working on it so others don't
duplicate your work.</li>
+<li>Check out the source code from SVN.  You may want to use an IDE like Eclipse or
IntelliJ with the proper plugins to do this
+for you.  More information is available on the <a href="dev-sourcecode.html">Source</a>
+<li>Setup your build enviroment.  Check out the README included in the source code
on how to do this.  You will want to make sure that you can perform a compile before you go
much further.</li>
+<li>Fix the bug.  If you need help, ask the dev@flex.apache.org mailing list.  I'm
sure we have pointers to help you out.</li>
+<li>(optional) Run the functional test suite called [Mustella][5] on your code.  The
[Mustella tests][5] are available from the ANT script, but make sure you set it up first.</li>
+<li>Create a .patch file.  If you are using an IDE, check your SVN, VCS or Source Control
menus for this option.  If you are using svn from the command line, use 'svn diff &gt;
+<li>Attach the .patch file to the JIRA ticket you noted earlier.  A committer will
review the patch and make sure it dosen't break anything else.</li>

 <p>Due to leagal reasons, only a select group of people have access to update or contibute

 We at Apache take the legality of code seriously, and nothing would be worse than somebody
contibuting code that
 they don't own and a 3rd party having a legal claim to our framework.</p>

and for you to be reconized
 for your work as a committer.</p>
