Jono’s blogged about what we’re doing to keep the sponsorship queue healthy.
It can be a real bummer when contributions are ignored so I am glad we’re taking a more proactive stance on the problem and setting aside time for people to do it. You can find out more about the Sponsorship Process here.
Another important element to accepting gifts is Operation Cleansweep. Here’s the stats for the week:
Total bugs with patches: 2395 (+10) Reviewed patches: 428 (+1) --- Bugs with 'patch-needswork': 99 (-1) Bugs with 'patch-forwarded-upstream': 192 (+5) Bugs with 'patch-forwarded-debian': 63 (+1) Bugs with 'indicator-application': 38 (0) Bugs with 'patch-accepted-upstream': 60 (-1) Bugs with 'patch-accepted-debian': 10 (0) Bugs with 'patch-rejected-upstream': 19 (0) Bugs with 'patch-rejected-debian': 3 (0) --- Last updated: Sun, 21 Nov 2010 08:05:42 +0100
Plenty of work for many more people! If you want to dive in hit the Getting Involved page — Cleansweep is a good place to get started, you just need to know how to review code, you don’t have to worry about learning all the Ubuntu Developer-specific workflow to contribute!
