|« dotProject 2.1.3 Released!||dotProject 2.x and it's Future »|
One of the largest changes we've made as a team so far is to move dotProject 2.x development from Subversion on SourceForge.net (where dotProject 2.x development continues) to Git on GitHub.com. More detailed information on the new setup is available on the dotProject Code Repository page on the docs site.
In the survey results we've found that over 40% of you have customized dotProject in some way. Many of the comments we've seen have also stated interesting customizations and improvements.
Historically, those have been tricky to get back into the core of dotProject. Now, with the move to Git, the process is much simpler.
GitHub provides an easy system for "forking" a project. In Git terminology a "fork" is merely a clone of an existing Git repository. This means that you can create your own fork of dotProject within Git, add your code to the Git repository, pull in changes we make via Git, and request to push your changes to us--which would get them added to a feature branch and eventually the core of dotProject after they're approved.
The particulars of doing this sort of thing is more the realm of the forums.
We hope that this move will allow you the opportunity to contribute your customizations and improvements back to the community in a way that will benefit the entire dotProject community.

Nice move! But what about Mantis (http://bugs.dotproject.net)? I just wonder on how to make it cope with the submitted code from the comunities all over the world.
@erico, bug fixes could be done in the “forks” and we will close the actual bug ticket in Mantis when we’ve merged in the change. Having the Mantis ticket number referenced in the forks commit message would also be helpful as we collect changes and merge them into the core.
Thanks for asking.
I’m testing dotProject, it’s look very interesting but I have a litle problem afeter installing ( a class “Date_Span” not founded ) and I need some technical support with this problem.
Can you recommend me some dotProject’s forum ? Many thanks, in advance.
@MickyMike, hope you’re enjoying dotProject. Our forums are available at http://forums.dotproject.net/
