Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Supporting our users to be more involved with our project

Hi

Good idea about the field in JIRA.

We should probably add some details about that in the contributing
page, which we refer people to, when they ask about how to contribute:
http://camel.apache.org/contributing.html

We should probably also encourage people to contribute with other kind
of material than source code patches. For example to help with
documentation, writing new examples, tutorials, better getting started
guides, blog posts, being active on the mailing list, help people on
stackoverflow or other 3rd party forums etc. Its all great
contributions.

For example we have JIRA tickets where we ask for help to for example
- at each EIP page, to ensure there is at least 1 Java DSL and 1 XML DSL example
That would be an excellent JIRA for people to help with. So far it has
been Ben and me that have contributed the most for this JIRA. But
would love more help from the community and others from the Camel
team.

Likewise we should in fact ensure that on each component page there is
an example as well in both Java DSL and XML DSL (if possible.).  I
think we may lack this in quite a few components. These last two
really helps with beginners and people who are getting started with a
new component, how to use it. I will log a JIRA about the component
examples, so we wont forget.
