    I signed up to help test nightly builds, I want to try to contribute to wordpress that I luv so much, and learn more as I go, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for testing: methods, tools, techniques.
    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Are you using http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-beta-tester/
    I also tend to use test data available on Theme_Unit_Test for the basic content with my own bits added when (or if) I need to test something out.

    yup I just installed beta-tester an hour ago. thanks a bunch esmi! I'll check out theme unit test. I threw a set of core plugins in that are kept up to date, I'll muddle around.
    Thank you for your suggestions.

    Another good place to test the new stuff, is to see what is new posted here (http://wpdevel.wordpress.com/) and to see if you can figure out how to do it and if there are problems you run into.

    Also to see what has been committed here (http://core.trac.wordpress.org/timeline) then play with the new features and functions can be fun.

    I personally (not recommended for a critical site) run my main site on trunk and keep tweaking my them with new features and replacing the depreciated functions in my plugins for fun.

    Thanks Charles, that's a lot of good stuff. Yeah, I run Wamp with apache and php for testing, and dev. I'm a nubie really, I started using wp 3 years ago, I didn't know anything about anything. no html, css, php, xml, nothing. Now I am starting to take my first baby steps into dev. Studying fo php certification. It's all because of WP, and opensource. I am greatful to everyone involved with wordpress.
