      How can You help?

* We would like to encourage people to test this and any further
    releases as much as possible and submit bug reports in order that we
    can continuously polish GnuCash to be as stable as possible.  Simply
    post any bugs you find to bugzilla

* If you have the urge to help beyond testing please get involved in the
    discussions on the GnuCash mailing lists which you will find at  We especially need people to help with
    updating the documentation.  Please see on how to get involved.

* Translating: The GnuCash 2.2.0 release came with some new translation
    strings.  If you consider contributing a translation, we invite you
    to work with the translation template in this package.  Our
    development is in String Freeze now, so you can safely work on our
    translation.  Please check for updates on this.
