Gsoc 2013

Post by erangamapa »

Hi
I am Eranga, a Computer Science and Engineering undergraduate from University of Moratuwa.
I have involved in developments with php and have passion for it.
I am interested in contributing to phpBB and participating for gsoc with phpBB.
Where can I start?

Hi,
There is no official announcement for GSoC '13 yet. For contributing to phpBB you can clone the phpBB repository (https://wiki.phpbb.com/Git), take a look at the bug tracker (http://tracker.phpbb.com/) and start fixing some bugs. This will give you some insight into the code base and get you started. If you come across any problems please feel free to post them here on the board or discuss them on IRC (#phpBB-dev).
Thanks,

Fork the phpBB repository at github: https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb3

Create a branch for the bugfix and submit a PR against the phpBB repository.

You should check out the wiki article as it explains some procedures you'll want to follow and guidelines that must be met before it can be merged (which are easy to do as you work on it, but harder if you have to do it later). https://wiki.phpbb.com/Git

Also, keep in mind that if you have any questions while you're making your patch, you can ask in the #phpbb-dev channel on the freenode IRC server. If you don't have an IRC client, it's pretty easy to connect on http://webchat.freenode.net.

Thanks

I added following pull requests for bug fixes.
https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb3/pull/1229
https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb3/pull/1230
But I couldn't change bug status in bug tracker as I don have an account in bug tracker.
How can I obtain a one?

Th bug tracker account is tied to your phpbb.com forum account so you should be able to login using those credentials.
