Should be corrected.
That *is* correct. The only people *assigned* interface kit team tasks
are interface kit team members. The only people who are (or shortly
will be, when I find time to do a cull) interface kit team members are
those who have shown that they are reasonably consistent contributors
who will take responsibility for the tasks they have been assigned.
This policy is similar to that employed by *many* open source projects,
and I'm actually much more liberal about it than most projects are:
once I've got a reasonable amount of code (one medium class worth, with
unit tests, etc.) from someone, they become a team member in full
standing with all the rights, responsibilities, and priviledges thereof.
;) Which is to say they can post to the mailing list and I get them
full CVS access. Who knows how long you'd have to submit patches for
Linux or one of the BSDs before you got CVS access; I'll wager it takes
a *lot* more than I'm asking. =)
Having said that, I'm pretty confident that the individual currently
working on the menuing stuff will soon be a full team member.
The site is not, however, being kept as up-to-date as everyone
(including myself) would like: it's always a question of whether
spending my limited time updating the site or writing some code would be
more useful in moving the project forward. In an attempt to remedy the
situation, I am currently looking for someone to help out with updating
the site. It's the perfect opportunity to help out for someone who is
not terribly technical, but motivated and available.
