Blog for Mar 3

Matt's blog thing

For this week I read the article Bug Tracker  ( from Karl Fogel. It was an interesting article and I learned about a new bug tracking model called the “buddy system”. With the buddy system you have the submitter do a little bit of extra work by having their bug verified by another user. This saves time for the developer and it keeps the bug submitter for feeling like an idiot when they find out their bug was just user error. I prefer this approach because from my experience users like to submit duplicate bugs that the submitter doesn’t take a few extra seconds to search for keywords.

For progress on the group project we met up last friday and talked about how we should find some resources that have done similar things to what we would be doing. We found the Google Summer of Code site that has the themes the student made. We also found a Diazo tutorial from a know Plone contributor that should help us with making themes that users can install from the web instead of needing to download the zip file. A bit of extra work we did that was finding a site called that will give us some inspiration on what type of theme we should make.

For next week I plan on reading the new article for the week ( and respond to the prompt given. I will also do some more research into the type of theme I think we should make for the project. I like the idea of an outdoor blog, but I want to bring some other ideas to the group meeting. I will also look into my 500 line of code project Block Code and think of a way I could add some new feature to it. I’m pretty sure I will make some new examples for users to use, but I should do a little more.
