I recently started contributing to WP eCommerce. It’s only really been 2 weeks, but I’ve noticed something.
Lots of issues with no pull requests.
I’ve found 3 or 4 tickets from solid developers (selling premium WPEC products) that have no pull request attached. So they are mentioning an issue or complaining, but not taking the next step of fixing it.
I’ve found this to be true on my small projects on Github as well. People will tell me about bugs, but fix them? Nope.
Being a good member of the development community is more than just creating that issue. If you’re submitting an issue and have any coding skills take the time to put together a pull request as well.
