Open Source Contribution

Hi.

After some reading and coding samples i'm looking for a real ROR open-
source project to contribute.

Does anybody need help?

Hi Gilherme,

I'd like to improve story management of a Scrum app.
Take a look at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/windsofscrum
Right now I'm developing new features but story creation, assignation
and repriorization is an app weak point.
If you like to collaborate contact me.

Regards

Sadly that u are use sourceforge.net, because
at rails community, in the current realities, if project is no at github.com, its likely dead.)

are you from github?

Dammit.... all my projects must be dead then :frowning:

There are a lot of open-source project need some help. I can say
someone :

Typo : http://github.com/fdv/typo
Redmine : http://github.com/edavis10/redmine
Shapado : http://github.com/patcito/shapado
Oupsnow : http://github.com/shingara/oupsnow
Errornot: http://github.com/errornot/errornot

And a lot of. By example you can upgrade all of that project in Rails
3 Beta or help with some fix bug, report bug or add features.

Thank you Oliver and Cyril for the suggestions.

I will check it out and decide from where to start.

+1 for shapado, if you need help you can talk to us on #shapado in freenode
Thanks Cyril :wink:

I'm assuming you're asking for RoR projects, not just plugins or gem
projects.

I'm not active in these groups, but they're pretty friendly:

FatFreeCRM
Hobo
Redmine

Other projects: as far as I know, no one is making an effort to port
Beast/AlteredBeast (RoR forum) to Rails 3, but I've been out of that
loop for a good while.

You may also want to look at Spree and RefineryCMS, though the latter
is put out by a design company. If you're looking for a high-profile
project to help you build a freelance portfolio, Spree may be your
best bet.
