400th Sponsor Program Integration
By Barbara Corwin on May 04, 2009
Congratulations to Rafael Vanoni and Chad Mynhier.
Rafael did a putback to the O/N Consolidation today of two bug fixes from Chad: 6730130 and 6733214. In addition to being useful changes to DTrace code, these changes mark the 399th and 400th integrations done via the Sponsor Program.
Chad has been a contributor for almost two years, has had 16 code changes integrated, and currently has six other code contributions in progress via the Sponsor Program.
If you're curious about contributions to date via the Sponsor Program, check out the request-sponsor table on opensolaris.org. That page also contains a pointer to the Improving OpenSolaris page which has information to get you started on your first contribution.
Contributions to date via the Sponsor Program have been made to the O/N, Install, Cluster, Desktop, G11N, SFW, X and Pubs consolidations. There was a dip in the total number of code integrations in Year 2, but the numbers have been growing since then. And when we hit our fourth anniversary next month, Year 4 will show the most code integrations in a year so far.
Many thanks to all the contributors and Sun engineers who enable this participation while we work to make it all easier.
