We'd like to bring together a broad group of Adoption supporters that are
experienced Java/C/C++ developers and/or have Contributor, Committer,
Author or Reviewer status within OpenJDK (for various projects) to act as a
group that can triage new contributor patch reviews, bug submissions and so
forth. This group will be a very important quality control buffer and
mentoring group so that new contributors understand the high quality level
of patches / bug submissions but can also be mentored to improve those as
opposed to be outright rebuffed.
Patches - The rough idea will be that the Betterrev system will feed
patches by new contributors into this channel for review before being
forwarded to the various individual OpenJDK mailing lists. This will help
foster a culture of high quality patches going into OpenJDK by new
contributors and helping those contributors go through the patch submission
process and other OpenJDK conventions.
Bug submissions - The rough idea will be that this group can assist with
triage of bug reports and feature requests by new contributors. This will
help foster a culture of high quality bug reports going into OpenJDK by new
contributors and helping those contributors understand what is required of
a submission in order for it to be worked upon.
An outstanding task for this is to understand the number of Java/OpenJDK
related bug reports come in over time period X via bugs.sun.com.
I'd like to propose an adoption-review at openjdk.java.net mailing list to act
as a central point, but I'm all ears on ideas on how we could trial this
