Where does all the time go?

Wow.  Time passes – fast.

I’ve been working hard on taming the docs for Castle as many of you already know and although I’m making progress it sometimes feels very slow.  This is especially true when I find myself with too many other things on my hands – business travel to Italy, refactoring code,  mentoring colleagues and trying to grok legacy software from the bowels of a system at work to name but a few.  The last is especially fun when the developers who wrote the code have not been with the company for years now…

So, the reward for all this hard work?  More hard work?  No – sod it – I’m taking few days off to drive around the south of France.

Regardless, in an effort to maintain forward motion on the MonoRail docs, for those of you who’ve offered to contribute, now’s the time to step up to the plate (or crease if you’re from this side of the pond and prefer the cricket analogy).  The source is all in the contrib source repository and I’m happy for people to put their hand up for a section or subsection (hell, even a paragraph!) that is inadequately documented, needs reworking, proof reading – anything.

If you’ve ever wanted to get involved in Open Source this is going to be an easy entry point – and you get to learn even more which can help you get closer to the code!  Before I began the restructuring I had a reasonable idea of what I was doing with MonoRail, but now I feel like I know soooo much more…any hey – now I know how to work with DocBook too.

Anyhoo – I’ll be back in a couple of days.  If you want to help out drop me a line.  Until then…à bientôt.
