If you have ever thought of contributing to NHibernate, but then couldn't find something easy enough for you to do, you have been heard. I have created a JIRA task (NH-616
) which will be linked to issues that are either easy or a bit harder but straightforward to implement.
If you have never thought of contributing to NHibernate, then, well, maybe you should think again? Here is a list of a few reasons why:
- Improved understanding of NHibernate internals will help you in your job.
- If you implement something that is useful for you and it is accepted into the core code base, you don't have to maintain it anymore.
- A significant amount of contributions will earn you a special Contributor rank in the forum :-)
- You will do something different from your usual work.
In the past, I have often postponed applying contributed patches until the short time before the release, but now I promise I will give them higher priority, so that you can get some feedback and see the results of your work much sooner.
I'm also willing to provide guidance and advice to any potential contributors via e-mail, instant messaging or IRC.
