Linked Task Request
There was no task request made for this contribution. I offered to create some documents for the project and the project owner obliged. This request was made via a public issue on Github.
Easy Diary is an amazing project. I can't overemphasize how amazing it is. It has become an indispensable app for me lately. You will find out why ,in this article I wrote about the app.
The developer has keenly been maintaining the project. On the project's repository on Github, you will find that the developer has released 100 versions of the app. All these updates were done by himself. Every new thing that has been done on the app, was done by him. But, it shouldn't be so.
Aside from making source codes open and free, collaborative development is another component of an open source concept. Unfortunately, that has not been the case with this project. I don't know the reason though. But, it'd be great to see open source contributors get on the project and advance it further. Currently, there are only 3 contributors to the project. That is; me, the project owner, and some other guy.
I had to find a way to get people contributing and opted to create a "contributor's guidelines" for the project. Hopefully, this would spur people to contribute to the project, and show them the way to do so.
You can read the project owner's original policy statement here.
The contributor's guide was concise and detailed. I highlighted how prospective contributors can get started with my making their contributions. Whatever they decided to contribute.
It's been great working with the project owner. I have never had a better communication with project owners on Github than this guy. He responds to pull requests and opened issues quickly. I've made some suggestions to the project and he plans to implement them in the next version of the app. I love his zeal and dedication to seeing that the project is constantly improved on. I've offered my services for any kind of document he hope's to create in the future.
For the documents I created, I sent pull requests for them and he merged them almost instantly. He liked them as no corrections were made, or highlighted for me to correct.
