Join the Mailing List
Discussion of Shoebot primarily happens on our mailing list. It’s low-traffic and friendly — the best place for you to head into in order to get answers for your questions (as basic as they might be!)
- Sign up to the mailing list
- Read the mailing list archives, either at GMane or Nabble (recommended) or the Mailman originals.
- Subscribe to the mailing list’s RSS feeds; there’s one for new messages and one for new threads.
We have IRC discussions on #shoebot on FreeNode, feel free to drop by anytime! (Although posting on the mailing list to let other know you’ll be active on IRC may be a good idea as the channel isn’t always active)
We also maintain @shoebot at Identi.ca where you can see comments on the codebase, or just keeping in touch
Share your scripts!
Made something cool with Shoebot? Saw a cool script and ported it to Shoebot? We want to see and publish it — do share it with us!
Help with documentation!
Documenting software can be boring, and we could definitely use an extra hand or two on this effort. You can help supplement the existing docs and file bug reports regarding subjects you would like to see covered.
If you find a bug, please take the time to write out how to make the bug happen repeatably, and then post it on the Bugtracker!
Our bugtracker, the the Shoebot Trac, requires you to create an account in order to create new “tickets” for each bug you find. Taking the time for this is the best way to see your problem fixed.
Missing features are a kind of bug, too. You can imagine new features and post a request for them on the bug tracker in the same way.
Hack on the code!
If you are a programmer, you are invited to download the source code and to try fixing your favourite bugs – adding the new features you want to have, or ones suggested in the bugtracker. Shoebot’s code is small and readable, so it’s really simple to get your Python-fu going and start hacking!
Shoebot uses Git for version control, so it will be a lot easier to merge your code if you use it too! It’s as simple as cloning the main Shoebot repository and hack on your local copy. When you have some code to contribute back to the project, fork our repository on Gitorious, commit your changes and send us a merge request.Comments Off
