We need help
So it’s been a long road to 1.0. We’re still recovering. Some things however have always been the same for the project. One of those is the following
We need help
We need help in a couple of forms which I will explain below. Basically we’re at a point where we are getting a lot of new users, so we need some additional resources in a couple of areas.
Help with users
For starters, let’s take a look at the “Needs Feedback” milestone on Trac. There are, at the moment of this writing, 242 open tickets in this milestone. It should be much lower. Our general policy is to leave a ticket open for 2 weeks once placed into this milestone, and then to close the ticket as “WorksForMe” until we get feedback on it.
In general we try to get back to users as soon as we can, but it’s hard to do on a project like Adium. Ticket triaging is down to myself and Eric. The first week that Eric started helping with tickets, he processed about a thousand untouched tickets, which is why he leads the TicketTaskForce. If you would like to help with the TicketTaskForce, please contact him.
We are in dire need of more developers. We have some really great developers already, but they can’t do it all alone. This is the reason we haven’t done things like Voice and Video, because we just don’t have enough hands to tackle something like that.
Summer of Code
Last, but not least. We’ve been invited to Summer of Code again. If you are interested in that, please see our summer of code page on trac.
