The best thing about an open source platform is that there are users who contribute to make it much more bigger and better, WordPress is no different and it has a huge user community that not only contributes to the core, but, also help in answering user questions and solve their problems.
The best part about it is that most of the help comes from the community itself, who spend time to help WordPress quash bugs and also help other users to solve problems they face with their installations.
This community would grow bigger and better with more and more users, and many users are eager to help but may not know where to start, here are some ways to help out with bugs in WordPress, or help out other users solve their problems.
WordPress Trac is a place where users can file bugs and help solve them by testing and submitting fixes, this is a place where many bugs are filed and solved, helping make WordPress releases bug free and better for the larger audience.
