Aaron Jorbin's Blog:
Commit The Story of Writing a WordPress Patch
August 09, 2010 @ 12:57:17

For those that have considered contribute back to the WordPress project but weren't sure what the experience might be like, you should check out this helpful post from Aaron Jorbin with his story.

Hanging out in the #WordPress irc channel or on the wp-hackers mailing list, a question that comes up from time to time is 'How do I get a bug patched'. I recently had a patch committed, so I thought I would detail the process from start to finish to help others get an idea of the process.

He shares three lessons he learned during the experience - make it easy for non-coders to see the change, getting suggestions from other developers on the patch and realizing that sometimes, a small change in one place can break other things too.
