Hi all, Geary is looking for a co-maintainer!
@mjog doesn't have enough time to to do it all by themselves any more, and so is looking for a hand in taking care of day-to-day tasks such as bug triaging and fixing, and working on improving the front-end side of the app in particular.
If you're interested, take a look at the issue tracker, and pitch on in!
If you have any questions, please thread them below or get in touch with @mjog 👇
For what it's worth, here's a likely very incomplete THANKS file:
Geary is Free Software, being built by people, for people. ✌️ ❤️ 💻
Also to people who have been donating cash on Librepay (you know who you are), and the many people who report bugs and follow through with more information and testing when required.
All of the bug reporting, updating, and testing are just as essential as the development and translation work, and Geary wouldn't be as solid as it without that. So, thanks!
If you'd like to contribute, regardless of whether you can code or not, there's a bunch of helpful ways listed here: https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Geary/Contribute
While we have for a while been making sure that people who make code and translation contributions to Geary are acknowledged in the NEWS and THANKS files, we haven't really been acknowledging people who have been contributing in other ways. While we figure that out, here's a stop-gap list of people:
* Andre Klapper (bug triaging)
* Federico Bruni (bug reporting and fix testing, Discourse answering)
* Martin Mayer (bug wrangling and updating)
* Tobias Bernard (interface design)
As usual, Geary 40 is the product of a large number of contributions from the community, including a number of people contributing improvements for the first time.
See the NEWS file for the complete list: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/geary/-/blob/mainline/NEWS
