Today on the kde-quality
list, Christian Loose of Cervisia fame celebrated
the initial success of the Junior Jobs, which helped him get three patches. Junior
Jobs were suggested by
Adriaan de Groot back in May. They serve as a "you are welcome to
hack here" sign, and mark bugs or wishes that are suitable for someone
who is starting to hack KDE.
As Christian puts it: "I started to mark some bugs as JJ some months
ago. Now I already received three high-quality patches from two
different people (Thanks Sergio and Dermot!) for those reports.
That's much more than I expected."
So, developers, remember to mark those easy bugs with a 'JJ'.
Some coaching for the new developers who accept the challenge would
represent a nice incentive as well.
Or, if you always wanted to develop KDE and never knew where to start,
check the open Junior
Jobs out. I am sure you will find something fun to do!
