Splinter sprint on FISL

We are going to start tomorrow, on FISL, another splinter sprint. “From June 29 through July 2, 2011, fisl12 will be hosted at the PUC Events Center, in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil” (copied from FISL website). But don’t worry about the location: anyone in anywhere can join us in this sprint. There is an entry in splinter wiki about this sprint, and I’m just replicating the information here...

What is a splinter sprint?

Basically, a splinter sprint is an excuse for people to focus their undivided attention, for a set time frame, on improving splinter. It’s a focused, scheduled effort to fix bugs, add new features and improve documentation.

Anybody, anywhere around the world, can participate and contribute. If you’ve never contributed to splinter before, this is the perfect chance for you to chip in.

How to contribute

  1. Choose an issue
  2. Create a fork
  3. Send a pull request
Remember: all new features should be well tested and documented. An issue can’t be closed if there isn’t docs for the solution code.

Preparing for the sprint

Get an IRC client, so that you can join us in the channel #cobrateam on Freenode.

See all you there!
