I need help with an apostrophe.

Which of these is correct?

* "Developers Guide" i.e. "The guide for the developers"
* "Developers' Guide" i.e. "The guide belonging to the developers"
* "Developer's Guide" i.e. "The guide belonging to the developer"

I can see a case for all three, and can fund any guidance in my normal
reference books.
