I just gave Korakurider commit access to the main Etoys repository. Welcome to the team! :)

I'm really happy about that - earlier this week we got Ricardo, now Korakurider. Yay!

Still, it would be great if some more people could help out. It would even be okay to have two from the same country ;) So far we have 4 committers, one each from Sweden, Argentina, Japan, and Germany - click on "Groups" at source.squeak.org to see.

If you (as in "one of the 190 subscribers to this list") want to get involved, start by committing fixes to the Etoys inbox. One of the committers can then take this and merge or move it into the main repository.

We operate under an "optimistic" development model: Everyone of the core team usually commits to the main repository directly. The others see the commit notice on this list, and can follow up with a correction if needed. 

This is in contrast to the "pessimistic" model we used previously, which required every change to be reviewed first. While that would be "safer", with such a small team as ours it's just unrealistic.

If we are really unsure about a change we can still submit it to the inbox first for review, but hopefully this is not necessary for the majority of fixes.

Anyway, thanks everyone for their work! :)
