First, I think it's a fantastic idea!


We connect Open Source project maintainers with people who want to gather more experience in coding.


However, this is incredibly difficult. I have several OS projects, most of which I've written articles about here, and to date I've had a total of 2 contributors. Conversely, I've also forked several OS projects but never contributed myself to any of them.

Also, I'm not really too keen on wanting inexperienced people making contributions -- that can easily lead to my spending more time getting the code up to snuff (or flat out rejecting it) than working on the project myself.

So...I think the idea is fantastic, I've just never been able to figure out how to build the bridge to attract people that want to (and are capable of) contributing to a project. So, I wish you the very best of success -- if you can figure out how to succeed at this, I will sing your praises!

That, and I'll poke around more and see about adding one of my projects to your site.
