This morning I woke up and found the sponsoring queue at 103 items! I mailed the ubuntu-devel and ubuntu-motu lists and the current count is down to 81. This is great, but I’m sure we can get it down to 0.
Jani Monoses also filed these bugs to discuss how we can improve our sponsoring strategy:
- Bug #1008449: explicit forward-to-debian tags?
- Bug #1008445: Support for blacklisting packages
- Bug #1008441: Allow grouping by contributor
You might want to join the conversation.
What we need most though is that if you can review code and upload changes, you head over to the sponsoring queue and help reviewing. It’s understandable that after UDS everybody is busy doing merges or jumps head-first into work items, but we also need to help newcomers get their changes reviewed. If you need some help, review our sponsorship best-practices.
If you should want to help on a regular basis, ping me or drop me an email and I’ll add you to the patch pilot schedule and you’ll get monthly reminders.
Rock on everybody! We can be happy we have so many new contributors, let’s don’t let them down! 🙂
