Relatively little activity in bzr trunk :-( I want to contribute...

Asked by Kevin on 2015-09-12

I'm a professional software engineer and have been using Mercurial (hg) DVCS for about a year. I've tried Git but I did not like it, Mercurial was much more user-friendly. These two SCM projects are very active; lots of contributors committing often to trunk. I just recently discovered Bazaar (bzr) and I have found it to be the very best, user-friendly, intuitive DVCS; more than any other. Sadly, the latest stable release is over 2 years old, and the latest stable Windows release is over 3 years old! :-(
I would love to contribute and help fix bugs and implement new features to ensure that this excellent SCM project continues with a healthy development community.

I've already switched my projects to use bzr and have begun to use Launchpad.

Please let me know anything else I can do to help.

Hi Kevin,

The best place for this kind of question is probably the mailing list - https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/bazaar

Hope this helps,

Jelmer

I went ahead and joined the bazaar mailing list, and I asked this question there. If nothing else, I will probably begin to explore the bazaar code to become familiarized with it and start asking in the mailing list about what features/bugs need the most work; then, I'll jump on and contribute ;-)
