[Proposal] Better handling of patches

vmassol
Administrator
Hi XWiki committers,

We need to better handle patch contributions. It's really important  
that when someone submits a patch we review it quickly and apply it  
or ask for modifications. Providing a fast answer means that we'll  
get more contributions and XWiki will soar even higher...

Right now we're doing a poor job at handling patches. The first step  
in improving is in detecting issues with patches.

I have thus started tagging issues with patches with "patch" in the  
keyword field. I propose that we all do this whenever we see an issue  
with a patch attached.

I have also modified the default JIRA dashboard on http://
jira.xwiki.org/ so that the list of issues with patches attached are  
listed in the right column.

If you agree I propose we make it our priority to review and fix  
issues with patches attached.

WDYT?

Thanks
-Vincent

i definitely agree. nothing worst than waiting for a patch to be
applied for a contributor i think(if the patch is good).

Vincent,

I updated the documentation here:

http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Community/Contributing

to describe usage of the patch keyword.
