One of my New Years Resolutions is to contribute to at
least one Open Source project this year. I figured that a
diary here would be a good way to keep track of that.
What have I done so far?
- Set up an account on Savannah and looked over the Project Help Wanted listings a few times but didn't find anything good.
- Wondered if it would be easier to get involved with software that I already use.
- Signed up for the Ant Developers' mailing list at Jakarta and started reading it. It's going to take a while to figure out what's going on over there - at the moment, there seems to be a lot of debate over 2 proposals for new versions of Ant. Unfortunately, the proposals section of the CVS repository is hard to navigate (there's code, but no overview of the sort that I associate with "proposal"). I'll probably post to the mailing list tonight and ask for an explanation.
