Re: Requesting contributions to IronRuby


#1

There was a response from a number of folks. We have nine folks listed
who are not on the Microsoft IronRuby team! We missed the dozen mark, so
I still do encourage folks to sign up for some tasks.

For those who have signed up, thanks for committing to contribute! Every
little bit helps. Do let us know if any process can be improved to make
things easier for you. I also request you to try to update the wiki with
just a couple of lines of what you are planning to do, where you are at,
if there is opportunity to collaborate with other, etc. If your project
catches someone’s interest, you will get a collaborator which will be
awesome.

Here is the current information straight from
http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/contributing

Who is working on what
See the People pagehttp://www.ironruby.net/About/People for contact
information of the contributors, or send an email to the mailing list.
If you want to collaborate on any of the tasks, please contact the
persons listed below. They would appreciate getting help, and you can
coordinate your efforts.
If you have your name listed below, please update this page with
information about your status (even if it is to say something like “I
wont be working on this for the next two weeks…”), if there are tasks
you are looking for collaborators, etc.

Subject: Requesting contributions to IronRuby

We are getting closer to the V1 release of IronRuby which is planned for
summer this year. The implementation has become fairly complete and
usable in a lot of scenarios.

Over the last few months, we have also improved our processes to make it
easier for the community to contribute to the project. This includes
moving the sources to GIT, pushing the sources to GIT daily from our
internal repo, adding shortcuts and scripts to make the dev environment
easy to use, having the Microsoft team work out of GIT, and finally
adding information on http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/. Many
folks are able to build and run the tests easily.

This opens up the opportunity for more of you to contribute to IronRuby
and help make the V1 release be more complete and solid. If you have
ideas of your own, go for it by all means. If you are looking for
suggestions, I have added a few ideas at
http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/contributing. There are easy
tasks like fixing RubySpec bugs and difficult tasks like porting a C#
sample. If you are interested in any of the tasks, let us know and we
will do our best to help you get started.

Every little bit helps, so don’t worry if you are not sure how much time
you can commit, if you are not sure how hard the tasks will be, etc. I
would love to see more people signed up for tasks in the “Who is working
on what” section. There are six names there right now. Can we get to a
dozen?

Thanks,
Shri
