As I said on slack due to the recently accepted programmers having not contributed any code changes (please remind be if I forgot some commit), I think we should change the criteria for accepting new programmers to be that either:
- They have a really impressive project to showcase (something like quite a big game project, not just a few small samples)
- They have made pull request on github to thrive (or the launcher) that was accepted.
This way we can keep from bloating the team with people who end up not contributing to thrive in any way that they couldn’t do by engaging with developers on discord or the community forums.
It should be mentioned somewhere that I’ll be available on discord to help anyone setup compiling thrive as much as I have helped new team members on slack. So the ease of getting started with their first change should be as easy as before as most of us active programmers are available on discord to answer questions. At least I’ll also be on the community forums.
I suggest that we discuss this for the next few weeks and then maybe starting on 1.4. (the perfect date) announce the new criteria and start following them.
