How To Get A Project Unstuck
When an open source project's gotten stuck, how do you get it unstuck? Especially if you aren't already one of its maintainers? Can someone experienced in open source, but not this project, catalyze and revive it or publish a delayed release?
I'll briefly share case studies, principles, and gotchas. Then I'll run a short, structured round of introductions, and ask:
* What kinds of "stuckness" have you seen in FLOSS projects?
* What circumstances make it easier or harder for projects to get unstuck?
* Do you know a stuck project? What support would you need to start getting it unstuck?
We'll end by forming optional accountability pairs and making commitments for post-MozFest followups.
Participants will get the most out of this session if they have 6+ months of hobbyist or work experience participating in an free and open source software project. All ages/educational backgrounds welcome.
