  • Q: What's a good bug for a newcomer to tackle?

    • 3
      The Gwibber team is starting to tag bugs as "bitesize" that are usually good bugs for newcomers to start on and be introduced to the code base.

      See the listing here: http://ur1.ca/rczi (launchpad tag search for bitesize on the Gwibber project)

      • Tip:

        Many projects have good small tasks that can teach newcomers how the project works. Now's your chance to share one of them!

        Include URLs if relevant (we'll automatically linkify them).

      • Example:

        Someone could improve the photo upload dialog box so that it lets you resize the photo before sending it to the web.
