Hey all, I’m Alan, I currently live in New York, and I started following MaidSafe maybe 4 years ago or so. I’ve got a little more free time on my hands lately, so I thought this would be a perfect time to dive into open source and some of the technical aspects of SAFE, and I’m hoping to contribute to some of the core libraries where I can My background is mostly in embedded systems and real-time computing, and I’m kind of a tinkerer. I’ve also gotten into a bit of machine learning as of late. What free time I have left I use for martial arts (Krav Maga and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu), and I’m not a bad cook most of the time.
That said, I’ve got a (hopefully not too stupid) question for developers on the core side about what issues are up for grabs and what the etiquette is for proposing solutions. Can I assume that if the issue is not assigned, that it’s open for me to propose an implementation or a fix for it in the comments? I’m a little unsure, as some issues seem to get merged without ever being assigned. The last large code base I worked in was for an established product, code ownership was stricter, and issues were mostly assigned to devs after triage by another team. In comparison this feels like the wild west lol, so I’m just trying not to step on anybody’s feet or accidentally start work on something that’s already got an implementation in the works
Anyway, that’s my deal, nice to meet you all!
