Subject Newcomer issues - a way to get started with Derby development
Date Mon, 15 Dec 2008 13:14:24 GMT

Below is a list of open issues listed as newcomer issues in Jira.
These might be a good starting point for anyone wanting to explore a 
small piece of Derby.

It would be great if committers and other more seasoned contributers pay 
a little extra attention when newcomer issues are taken, with the aim to 
  give newcomers a warm welcome by providing guidance and feedback.
Also, feel free to comment on any of the issues if you think they're not 
suited as newcomer issues.

Note that a newcomer might need help with issues besides the problem 
reported in Jira, for instance compiling Derby and running the 
regression tests. The Derby community has made great progress on 
simplifying the build, but there are still some murky waters.
Compiling older versions of Derby to verify a fix is one example.
