Announcing the “20 days to OpenRasta” project

As some of you already know, I’m very excited that OpenRasta is being presented at Mix10 in Vegas by none other than the talented Kyle Baley. As I’ve not realised the 2.0 RTM bits yet, I thought it’d be great if we could release a fresh 2.0 RTM build for the occasion.

This is a call to action to the users, adorers and believers: OpenRasta needs you!

In the next 20 days, starting from this Friday, let’s try and all commit some of our time to OpenRasta in one way or another. There’s a lot to be done and focused on, from the new web site, to updates to the code base, to enhancing the documentation.

To participate, just join the mailing list, find something interesting you’d like to be doing, and commit to work on it on a certain day.

On top of that, from this weekend, I’ll be organizing a code-a-thon on either day, with anyone that cares to join me for a day of pure pair programming coding on some of the OpenRasta code-base. Want to see extensible authentication done? Donate your day, we’ll have coffee and lunch and lots of code! Not in London? We’ll use Skype. No excuse!

As for me, I hereby promise to start posting a videocast a day for 20 days. Provided we have somewhere to host the videos and someone can help out with the encoding!

I’ll update this post with all the commitments that were made to help get a new release out of the door in time for Mix.
