Interacting with contributors
Love them – they probably need it.
Initial contribution special
- Inevitably a terrible patch – card ...
- Immediately respond, fix the patch, create the cws, commit it, credit them with the work.
- send it back once – so they learn, then fix it up
- send it back a lot – should be getting better by now
- commit it for them
Nth patch – crunch point
- Maintainership or sudden Death – be careful.
