At the moment, YAMJ is pretty much just me and I spend in excess of 30 hours a week on it. Think about that, it's almost another job.
There are occasional other programmers that lend a hand (Ilgizar does a great job for our Russian users), so I am finding it very hard to keep up with the things that need to be done with YAMJ to keep it afloat, let alone try and patch up some of the holes that I see need fixing.
So, this is an appeal, at this "special time of year" as all the commercials say, for any help that you feel you could give to help out YAMJ. Remeber YAMJ is FREE and OPEN SOURCE. You don't have to pay anything for this software at all!
Primarily, YAMJ could do with some more coders. There are over 2,000 outstanding bugs and enhancement requests out there. If you are at all interested in programming, especially in java, then please speak up. We have a pretty good guide to get you going, and I am always happy to review code before it's submitted to try and ensure that you don't break it!
If you don't know how to program, there's a long list of other things that need doing, things that you can pick up and put down and spend 5 minutes doing, and things that are a lot more involved. Here's a list, in no particular order, off the top of my head, of things that would need doing:
If you have ideas along these lines of how to improve YAMJ and the associated services, please let me know. You can email me at omertron at gmail dot com
I can't promise you anything more than grateful thanks, but it is a very real way that you can give back to YAMJ.
Thank you for your time
