Plone Tune-Up Coming this Friday, March 16th

by Mark Corum last modified Mar 14, 2012 06:46 PM
The March 16th Plone Tune-Up will focus on ticket gardening. We have over 1300 open tickets in Trac. Our goal this month is close 100 of them through deprecation or bug fixes.

ANNOUNCEMENT

Great news! The Plone QA team headed by Liz Leddy will be joining forces with the Tune-Up team. Together we will be able to help provide Plone a more coordinated QA effort and prioritize the bug fix tickets to support releases. Welcome to Liz and her team.

ABOUT

Plone Tune-Ups are regularly scheduled online events that give developers the chance to select and work on resolving issues. Not everyone wants to be a core developer or maintain a product in Plone, but most people have the ability to squash a few bugs, provide QA or improve documentation. Every time you give time back to the community you make Plone a better solution for everyone.   As an open source system, Plone relies on developers of all interests and skill levels to participate so that Plone can continue to be a leader among open source Content Management Systems. Experts will be available in a special IRC chat #plone-tuneup if you need help getting started.

THE PRIZE: THE EVER POPULAR PLONE TUNE-UP T-SHIRT

The Tune-Up prize will be a rare and coveted Plone Tune-Up t-shirt. In the past, these shirts have been awarded for: closing the most tickets, helping new people get started or generally being helpful to others. Up to one shirt may be awarded per Tune-Up at the discretion of the Tune-Up managers.
