Masterlist: bugs for beginners

Last updated: 2017-04-17

This is a list of bugs that will serve as a good introduction to the Dreamwidth development workflow. They involve varying levels of rummaging up to your elbows in the guts of the code but I can promise that we'll all be only to pleased to help :-) If in doubt, just take a look at the list of things real DW programmers do...

Struck out bugs are ones that have been claimed but not yet resolved. All issues on this list are tagged curated: beginner - I update this post once a fortnight, but by all means check the GHI tag to see if there's anything I haven't mentioned yet! If you're after a challenge, you can also try looking at non-curated lower-effort issues, all unassigned issues, or rummage through [site community profile] dw_suggestions' bugzilla: migrated tag for features you'd like to implement. (If you do that last one, check to make sure that the entry isn't also tagged bugzilla: implemented, and that there isn't a corresponding assigned issue.)

I might be interested in tackling the alt text to DW logo one, though not this week. It's something I've thought about before *g*.

I'm happy to do a drive-along if you would like.

That would be brilliant - I haven't used my DreamHack yet (and need to get it up to snuff Github-wise, etc. sometime soon!), but this just seems like something so small & well-suited to something I'm good at (describing things concisely AND vividly) that I'm willing to nibble as soon as I have space to breathe again.

Thought: is there an unofficial policy on how long a bug should be left as bait? I mean I would claim some of these because I love working on tiny bugs especially as a break from bigger stuff but babydev bait is awesome so... advice?

If it was opened more than 2-3 weeks ago, have at it.

Bah. I didn't notice that this was on the babydevbait list, and I just did it while bored... sorry!

There will always be more opportunities for people who are looking for beginner stuff! And it's better to have something done than sitting around for ages waiting for somebody to do it :)
