We've definitely been kicking around some ideas about making more
oss-bite-size bugs available and providing better/clearer information
about them on the site.
Would something like the table I've just created at
http://www.opensolaris.org/os/bug_reports/oss_bite_size/ help? I need to
work out the answers to many additional questions surrounding this table
-- the least of which is how often I can reasonably update the table --
soon, but wanted to get some early feedback on it.
As we've already discussed, there are a number of features that are part
of bugs.opensolaris.org that we want to change. In the meantime, I'd
like to workaround some of them for oss-bite-size.
Please provide comments ideas about this and other ways we can help make
the community code contribution process better.
