How can I help?

Asked by wtoconnor on 2008-09-07

I have downloaded and built the the current branch lp:drizzle. I am an experienced C/C++ programmer but I have never contributed to an open source project. I am not familiar with launchpad. I have read much of the wiki. I was thinking of trying to contribute to the ebay+google heap conversion effort but it looks as though someone may have started on that already.

Looking for guidance on areas that would help me gain experience contributing to this project.

(sorry if this is not the place to be asking this question)

Hi!

Here are some articles on using Launchpad that you might find useful (with a few more to come from me this week):

In addition, be sure to join us on Freenode #drizzle and ask for any help you need. We're available to help! :)

Cheers!
