  • Q: I'd like to participate. How do I begin?

    • 0

      There's a couple of things you could do:

      (1) Come and chat with us on IRC, we're hanging out on #f-spot on irc.gnome.org and we're really friendly (we promise not to bite). Keep in mind that we have lives too: if nobody answers, hang in there for a while, we'll answer at some point.

      (2) Send a mail to our mailing-list: http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/f-spot-list

      (3) Dive in! Find your pet peeve, download the source and fix it. Just ask us for help if you're stuck.

      • Tip:

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

      • Example:

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

      • Examples:

        I don't know how to get started with internationalizing my app.

        Bug 392 about printing was filed five years ago, and I don't even know if printing still works.

        I want help from a C coder writing a Maildir patch for Alpine.
