    Bug Fix in Firefox 

    Hey all,

    This was my first bug fix.
    The bug was to add a new word ‘quinoa’  into Firefox dictionary.


    A few things that I learned :

    1) Building and installing from source
    2) Keeping in contact with the mentor and updating him every 2-3 days.
    3) Creating a patch and asking for review
    4) Updating the tree every time you do new stuffs
    5) Working around multiple bugs that may cause weird patches 🙂
    6) Reading source code
    7) IRC
    8) Proper documentation
    9) Gained an inner strength to go further

    Thanks to Vipin sir, Adithya ettan and Arvind ettan who helped me to get started with bug fix.
    Also thanks to  ‘SS’ of ‘SSS’  🙂

    Revamp this site and increase participation 

    Here are few updates that some of us are working on. Our aim is to make this site contain all that we are doing. So, to start with we have new menu on the right side with few links. They are basically linking to category based pages. Some posts have been added to each of the category. Now, we need all those who contributed to open source projects to update that news here – so, to say, if Abhishek fixes a bug, then he will make a new “blog post” in amfoss with a title and some description and then add it to “bugs” category & “news” category. If all of you could pls update your status like this we could build up a good database of what we are doing. It would be great to have such a place.. we can show off to our juniors too!!
