I've been a PostNuke developer -- in the sense that I have CVS access, I'm on the developers' list, etc. -- for about a month. I'm yet to contribute a thing, and I think I've posted a grand total of once. It's not because I'm lazy, or disinterested. Instead, it's because I feel alienated, confused, overwhelmed and mis-matched. I'd just like to write some code, but I can't find any place to get started, and I don't want to get caught up in the mini-holy wars. The thought of another fork is incredibly frustrating, because it appears that a fork would be a consequence of personal and political issues, and not so much technical ones. I know that all of these things are normal and reasonable in any project -- I've been on the wrong end of this problem before, lord knows -- but it's serving as a real roadblock to me in this case.School
I'm hoping that it will occur to somebody that the PostNuke team needs to break down into a whole mess of little teams. I'd like to squash bugs on the core code (that is, not the bazillion ridiculous little modules.) That's all that I want to do on the project right now. Maybe I'll figure out some way to do that.
I started class again this week. Just a Biology 101, Biology 101 Lab, and a U.S. Government class. (Can you say "prerequisites?") I have class three nights out of the week, in three-hour blocks, so there goes my prime programming time until December.
