Re: Hi!


Shotwell is *not* being maintained by the elementary team, Yorba is. elementary forked Shotwell for Photos.

Wait, i think Shotwell and Photos (as the fork under the elementary-umbrella is named) are both active? Maybe i'm just misinformed here (Photos is not really my department).

Anyway, if you want to get your patch merges into Photos, you need to create a merge-proposal for this branch on launchpad: https://code.launchpad.net/~pantheon-photos/pantheon-photos/trunk <https://code.launchpad.net/%7Epantheon-photos/pantheon-photos/trunk> After you proposed your branch, you get feedback over the comments for your merge-proposal :)

Hi, I'm Tobia, from Italy.
I'm studying for my BS in CS, have previously worked for a couple of companies - mainly web portals and stuff - and was a GSOC student for the ScummVM project last year. I think Shotwell is an important piece of software and looks interesting to hack on, I'd like to contribute a little in my spare time. Disclaimer: I'm no ace, my purpouse would be in no small part to get some exercise and learn stuff.

I've started with attacking this one (really simple) ticket to get my feet wet - you can find the link to the proposed patch in the comments: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=717960

Is there anything you can suggest?
Interesting tickets to try and fix, IRC channels and pages to keep an eye on, suggestions?
