My $0.02, since I contributed a completion script recently: I didn't
find clear instructions on contributing on the main web page. I went to
the tracker, and saw a note there. Then I didn't know if I could post to
the list without being subscribed, so I subscribed. Confirmed. And then
That's a lot of steps, and perhaps not everyone will do this.
Perhaps you could have a direct note on the main webpage on your
preferred contribution mechanism? Also allow people to contribute
without subscribing. (Hopefully in a way that doesn't get you insane
amounts of spam.)
Finally, if you're considering the new forking model for people
submitting patches, can I suggest GitLab
as an alternative to GitHub. Its feature set is comparable to GitHub,
and is completely open source.
PS: Looking through your git logs looks like I sent you a bunch of
completions in 2011/12. And then nothing until recently. I'll check
if to see if I have any more local completion improvements that
might be useful and send them along.
