Subject Re: How to become a commiter?

Hi Jeff,

A good starting put would be to create yourself a JIRA account. Work
on something you find interesting and provide some patches. This is a
good way to get familiar with the project and get guidance from
committers on how to work in the project.

If you are looking for an interesting item, the builder pattern would
be a good one:

People see to feel that the builder pattern is better than the factory
pattern (and I agree with this). I would imagine we would have two
builder classes FormBuilder and TableBuilder in click extras.

regards Malcolm Edgar
