When I joined Document Foundation (LibreOffice) and got the title “development mentoring lead”, I wished to join an active project. To be honest, having a past in another office project, I expected to my main job to be searching for new people. I was mistaken !
Looking at openhub the project have had
1.898 commits by 81 contributors the last 30 days, and an impressive 19.177 commits by 282 contributors the last year.
I am currently involved in helping 9 new people to get their first patch on master. I am proud that 2 of them are already working on their second/third patch.
We look for developers/testers etc. to help maintain and extend LibreOffice, in order to serve our millions of end-users. Want to give a hand and become part of a great community, then send an email.
I wished for an active project and got what I asked for.
Have a nice christmas.
Wow, what a tour. I started by getting poisoned by Renfe (spanish railway)…good advice never by a sandwich !!! but what an event !
We could of course have been more people (that is a universal truth), but I had some good discussions with several spanish people, who like me, was interested in getting a spanish community activated.
We decided on several actions to take in the near future, so “perdoname el futuro de comunidad es Español es TU responsabilidad y no solo las otras”.
I want to especially thank “bubli” (IRC name) for bringing the small bears (a nice gesture of CIB), that saved my day !!!
Sweetshark (bjoern) was as usual a fountain of knowledge, although I will remember this hackfest for fixing a bug that no longer existed 🙂
Thanks a lot for a wonderful time, I can only hope that I gave a little bit back. “Hablamos pronto en email y recuerdo necesito ayuda yo estoy esperando mucho emails”.
We look forward to gran canary !!!! “las palmas”.
Ps. I am NOT moody, but we had 3 languages going !!!
