First Steps for Newcomers
Welcome to TranslatedFiles Project -- the place where
and NetBeans.org website
Wonder how to get started in general? Here's the info you need!
The first steps you should take are:
to dev AT translatedfiles DOT netbeans DOT org mailing list.
- Introduce yourself there: Your name, your login and what language
you are interested in. Also, any other interesting fact about yourself
or your work and how you use NetBeans.
- Check to see if there are other contributors to your preferred
language. Do this by asking in your introduction and also checking to
see if there is a mailing
list for your language. You'll be asked to subscribe to one more
mailing list (yes,
life's hard ;-) ) and all the uneasy tasks of contribution coordination
will be dealt with there.
- We hope you have already registered on netbeans.org
- In order to contribute,
- Note that your role will not be granted immediately, we need to
see your contribution first -- see you in action. When you're on a test
period, you are able to contribute as well, but your contribution will
go through review -- you send your pieces to one of developers and they
review & commit / review & reject your changes. And then, after
you contribute a bit and you are recognized as a sane and reliable
person, you're given Developer role. (Actually, you will be asked to request
a Developer role, and you'll get it granted immediately.)
We look forward to your contribution! And, we hope you have fun here!
