Hi! After 8-9 years of admiring Zope and using it now and then, I finally got myself to contribute to the grok project. I hope to contribute even more in the near and mid-term future.
We seem to have an issue with the documentation for becoming an SVN Contributor. Here are the steps I followed and the dead-end I got to. Following diverse people's advice, I followed the instructions from http://www.zope.org/DevHome/Subversion/ImpatientPeoplesGuideToRequestingCommitPrivileges which basically points to http://docs.zope.org/developer/becoming-a-contributor.html I filled out the form, scanned it and mailed the scan to foundation-i...@zope.org as mentioned in the contact details of the foundation on the 18th of April. Shortly afterwards, I received an automated response: Subject: Your message to Foundation-Info awaits moderator approval [snip] The reason it is being held: Message body is too big: 1817623 bytes with a limit of 40 KB [snip] After this was a lengthy silence. So I followed the next step from becoming-a-contributor.html which says to nag Jim Fulton. The problem is Jim never heard of this process and never saw my initial request. He was suprised the DevHome/ImpatientPeopleGuide.. was modified. Any suggestions what the new process should be? Is the Zope foundation now responsible for giving SVN Write access now that the form is about sharing copyright with the Foundation? If so, who can one nag within the Zope Foundation? We need to update the documentation of this procedure once we figured it out :) Thanks! Ben. _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - Zope-Dev@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
