LXer: Make it easy to contribute by making the software easy to test

Published at LXer:

Question: How do you get more developers to contribute to a free and open source software project? Contribution is the lifeblood of a FOSS community [he]nbsp[/he]Without contributions the community canít grow beyond the initial project founders. People donít just show up ready to work. They very likely start as users, even of the fledgling software before it really starts to take shape as the robust solution it could become.Letís approach the question of getting more developers involved as "software engineers" instead of as "community organizers" by asking a different question: Why do we use software versioning a.k.a. software configuration management tools?
