Subject Re: Unable to find bug tracker list
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2015 07:13:54 GMT
Thanks Yash, Lefty,

       Thanks very much, I have a lot of experience in Java EE and other opensources.  I have
finished more than 25+ successful java EE enterprise production implementations.
        1. I wanted to start contributing to ASF, I wouldn't mind the project (not for now)
, and hence like the 'new comer' section suggested, I am looking at all the defects, GSOC
and Mentor defects, but I haven't come across anything relevant.  Is it possible that any
of you could share a potential 'defect' as an example, I will try to look for others on the
similar lines?  
         2. Should I look for bugs with status 'New', or type as bug, implementation, new
feature...   Is there any specific logic to this?
Regards,
Prakash.

Prakaskh (and Prashant), each project has a mailing list archive
<http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/>.  You can browse old messages
or check whether any new messages have arrived since you joined the list.
