How to be an open source gardener Jump to Story

Steve Klabnik wrote a great piece called How to be an open source gardener in which he talks about his experience working on Rails issue triaging. Everyone who uses Rails — or any open source project really — should give this a read. Steve does a good job to show that open source often involves hard tedious and not so creative work and I really love the gardening analogy. For a beautiful project to keep growing healthily we need people to pull the weeds out, so please check out Richard Schneeman’s CodeTriage and pick an open source project you’d like to occasionally help with issue triaging.
