     8
     9If you believe that you have encountered a bug in the WebKit rendering engine, see the page on [http://www.webkit.org/quality/reporting.html reporting bugs].

     12
     13If you believe that you have encountered a bug in the Web Inspector, see the page on [http://www.webkit.org/quality/reporting.html reporting bugs]. You can directly file a bug for the Web Inspector by using this link: [https://webkit.org/new-inspector-bug]

     19If you're not sure whether it's a bug in Safari or WebKit, [http://webkit.org/blog/101/back-to-basics/ this blog post] might help. If you're still not sure or have any questions, feel free to [http://webkit.org/contact.html get in touch]. If you accidentally mis-file a bug against Safari or WebKit, don't worry! It will be redirected to the appropriate team by contributors who are better able to triage the bug.

     23
     24Most WebKit contributors are focused on fixing bugs and adding features to WebKit and its ports. General web development help is not on-topic in the #webkit IRC channel or mailing lists, and you will probably be ignored. There are many better venues for general help, such as Stack Overflow.

     26== get help with a problem in my code that uses JSContext, WebView, WKWebView or WebKit public APIs?
     27
     28You should send an email to [http://lists.webkit.org/mailman/listinfo/webkit-help the webkit-help mailing list].

     30== get help with a problem in my code running on an Android device? ==

    938The Qt project maintains an [https://github.com/qtproject/qtwebkit out-of-tree branch of QtWebKit], but it is deprecated in favor of the [https://wiki.qt.io/QtWebEngine Blink-based QtWebEngine]. It is recommended you read [http://blog.kov.eti.br/2014/03/qtwebkit-is-no-more-what-now/ this blog post] for more historical context.
