Successfully reviewed my first patch for the Dreamwidth codebase today. I managed not to destroy anything, and even inspired [personal profile] sophie to release a script. This saved me creating another 100 users by hand, thereby making my day. :)

I think I'm going to concentrate on code review as opposed to writing code, at least for the time being. There's obviously lots of talent going into writing code, but I know there aren't enough code review hands on deck. I'll put my effort where it's needed most.

In other news, my body is doing the "you need to give me insulin" aches even after I've given it ample insulin. It does this every so often for no apparent reason. Ow, my muscles. :(

Code review is a great way to familiarize yourself with the code base. It's how I got started, :)

By the way, my dev journal is at [staff profile] karzilla if you want to read my occasional status reports and brainstorming.

I keep a copy of the code repository on my laptop for grep and local editing, and scp files (or patches) over once I'm ready for testing. If you also use grep a lot (no shame in that!) you might want to consider going that route as well.

Rsync will work, or you can install Mercurial on your local machine and then use hg clone http://hg.dwscoalition.org/dw-free to get a copy. I prefer the latter because then I can use hg diff and hg status to track my work in progress.

This is fun to watch, by the way. I've been looking at some of the intro docs and I like how easy it is to get into this here. I'm woefully busy until the end of the year but am hoping I can break off some time/energy next year.
