Bug Fixing
 
I'm a little lost on how to get started working on bugs. I see statuses of them and I'm confused as to which ones I should/shouldn't work on.
Does anyone have any tips for me?

Thanks

Start on ones that affect packages you use and that you can replicate (it's a
great way to know when you are done).

Anything marked In Progress/Fix Committed/Fix Release there's no need to work
on. Bugs marked Triaged should have the best information to get started on
fixing, but there's nothing wrong with working on New/Confirmed bugs if you
can figure out what needs doing.

If a fix seems potentially controversial, mention in the bug what you're
planning on doing so it won't come as a suprise.
